The councils of North West Queensland are at the frontline of preparing for and responding to natural disasters in their communities. Our councils are prepared to be the first point of contact for our communities and visitors to provide information and direction in the event of a natural disaster.  

Combining their experience and local know-how, the councils of Carpentaria, Cloncurry, Doomadgee, Flinders, McKinlay and Richmond have developed the Get Ready NWQ online resource to ensure locally relevant information is easily accessible for locals and visitors. This project is supported by Get Ready Queensland.


 about how they get ready and respond to natural disasters

Carpentaria, Cloncurry, Doomadgee, Flinders, McKinlay and Richmond councils have developed a new online resource 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 so you can easily find the information when you need it.

Have you got your 'What-if' plan?

This Wet Season we are urging all North West Queenslanders to check their ‘What-if’ plan and get ready for the upcoming disaster season.

Being prepared before a disaster hits could be the difference between staying safe or putting yourself and those you love in danger. 

Take a look at our website and follow your local council on social media to stay up to date with what is happening in your area.
