Prepared communities

Disasters can strike with little or no warning and it’s important for Brisbane communities to be prepared, especially if you know that your area is likely to be isolated by severe weather or flooding, or if you have vulnerable groups within your community.

Brisbane radio stations for emergency information

It is important to keep up to date in an emergency or disaster event. Your local radio station may be your only source of information. Natural disasters can result in lengthy power outages and isolation due to debris or floodwaters. Landline and mobile phone services may be down.

You should have access to a battery-operated radio and spare batteries in your emergency kit so you can tune into you local radio station during an emergency or disaster event.
