Our Member Councils


 about how they get ready and respond to natural disasters

Carpentaria, Cloncurry, Doomadgee, Flinders, McKinlay and Richmond councils have developed a new online resource www.GetReadyNWQ.com.au which will feature local content including videos recorded with people across the region.

This is the first time our local councils have combined our efforts in this way, providing one central point, with an easy to remember URL that has links to all NWQ council’s websites, dashboards and social media accounts in addition to other useful resources like our videos.

Whether you’re local or travelling to our region bookmark www.GetReadyNWQ.com.au so you can easily find the information when you need it.
