We asked locals...
Ahead of the wet season, we travelled across the region and asked people in North West Queensland for some of their hints and tips on being prepared for the wet season, and what to do in the event of a disaster.
Take a look at our videos below or subscribe to NWQROC's YouTube channel.
How do North West Queenslanders Get Ready?
Even if you've lived in NWQ a life-time, it is always important to take the time to get ready ahead of the wet season, as well as prepare your home or business for any natural disaster that could occur at any time of year.
We asked locals, what are some of the things that they do (or we should do) to make sure we're prepared in the event of an emergency.
Mount Isa wet season safety campaign
Mount Isa Council has launched a new educational and awareness campaign featuring two short videos that aim to keep locals and motorists safe during the Wet Season. The videos encourage pedestrians and motorists alike to stay out of flooded waterways, and outline some of the simple things people can take to be ready for a long car journey during the Wet Season, such as checking weather forecasts and road conditions before leaving, installing a UHF radio in their vehicle, and bringing extra snacks and water with them.
