Disaster Management

During disaster events please listen to the advice of police and other authorities on the ground.

ABC radio is the official disaster station – ABC Far North’s emergency website has up to date information on emergency situations and weather. You can also listen live on your radio or on the live stream from ABC Far North’s website. Make sure you have a radio with fresh batteries and spares as if telecommunications go down, this may be your only way of keeping up to date.

Also please remember to keep your family and friends safe and keep out of floodwaters, flooded creeks and rivers. Remember: If it’s flooded, forget it.

Updates will also be placed on Council’s Facebook page as necessary but residents are urged to take necessary steps to keep informed for your own safety.

Keep yourself, your family and friends safe and stay out of floodwaters, flooded creeks and rivers. Remember: If it’s flooded, forget it. 



We are proud of our beautiful township, and where we live. However, there is a potential risk of nautral hazards, most likely to be tropical cyclones. We can’t afford to be complacent about the dangers they present.
