During a Disaster
In the event of a disaster, it is important to access up to date and accurate information to allow you to take action and quickly respond to protect your family, pets and home.
Council’s Disaster Dashboard provides useful information in preparation for and during a disaster event within the City of Logan. The Disaster Dashboard provides up to date information for the community about road hazards, weather warnings, power outages, evacuation centres and river heights.
It is important to stay informed when an emergency warning is issued by the Bureau of Meteorology or other agency. Council ensures the community has access to these warnings through the Disaster Dashboard and encourages everyone to make last minute preparations to prepare for the potential impacts of severe weather, such as securing loose items and moving your car.
In addition to this, during a disaster you should:
- Listen to your radio (River FM 94.9FM, 101FM, ABC radio 612AM) and/or television for the latest information and warnings
- Listen for the Standard Emergency Warning System (SEWS) - a wailing siren used that may be broadcast on radio or television for various emergency events for various emergency events of major significance, such as cyclones, flooding and severe storms
- Monitor the Bureau of Meteorology for weather warnings
- Monitor Council’s Disaster Dashboard for local information
- Act quickly on any advice given to ensure your family, pets and home are safe
