  • Be cyclone prepared

    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.

    For more information visit the DFES website and refer to their Cyclone Smart brochure.
