Responding to a flood threat
It's important that you understand how to respond to a flood.
Follow these tips when flooding is likely to impact your property:
- move valuables up high
- collect sandbags from Council depots
- listen to your local radio station for updates and/or visit Council's website
- make sure your emergency kit is ready. This should contain valuables such as jewellery, a back up of important computer files, warm clothing, important documents (such as birth certificates), and any needs for infants and pets
- plan your evacuation route. Don't drive through floodwaters. If you plan to evacuate, do so early, as roads may become flooded or congested
