Schools program


Discover this council program helping children understand severe weather and its potential impacts

Get Ready!

To familiarise children with severe weather and its potential impacts, council offers the disaster management schools program.

Tailored to years 5 and 6, the program equips students with the knowledge and tools they’ll need to provide meaningful assistance to their family and community before, during and after an extreme weather event.

The program is also a great opportunity to bust some myths about disaster management and emergency responses.

Being prepared is everyone’s responsibility, no matter how young or old you are!
