Be cyclone prepared
Jan 03 2020
Community members are reminded that we are currently in the middle of cyclone season. When you live in a cyclone prone region, such as North Western Australia, as a priority you need to get ready for the possibility of a cyclone between the months of November and April.
We would like to remind residents that preparing your family and your property for a cyclone is your responsibility.
This weekend is a timely reminder to:
- Trim branches and treetops around your home
- Remove or secure loose items around your home
- Fix shutters or metal screens to all your glass windows and doors
- Know how to switch off the electricity, gas and water
Planning before the cyclone season can help save lives, minimise property damage and help your family to cope during a cyclone. People also need to take proper precautions and responsibility for their own welfare, prepare property inside and out and develop a cyclone plan to ensure their safety.
