The Tweed Shire is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque and diverse regions within Australia. As part of this unique landscape we are exposed to a range of natural hazards, such as flooding, bushfires, severe storms, cyclones and lightning strikes. These emergency events can take many forms and can occur at any time, often with little or no warning.
These events can leave individuals and their families feeling potentially isolated, vulnerable and in need of immediate support.
Some of the ways that Council works to respond and recover during an emergency event include:
Council is continually working with emergency services and other agencies to limit the impact that such events have upon our community, infrastructure and environment, however there are simple steps that individuals, families and businesses can take to increase preparedness for a disaster and help to protect your loved ones, pets and property.
