Emergency readiness

Lightning strike

Being prepared before a disaster hits could be the difference between staying safe or putting yourself and loved ones at risk. Don’t wait for a disaster to happen before you think about what you need to do, how you are going to protect your home and belongings and how you and your family are going to survive.

Download our Get Ready Central Coast Guide for tips and advice on how to get ready for extreme weather events to help keep you, your loved ones and your property safe during a disaster.
