Severe weather challenges all of us. Activities that we take for granted can become difficult or even hazardous when severe weather occurs. However, by taking some simple steps you can reduce the impact of such events.
The Government Task Force on Emergency Planning prepared a winter-ready booklet which gives information on being prepared, providing practical advice for coping during episodes of severe weather, as well as giving contact details of organisations and agencies that can provide guidance and assistance.
The main message is simple - be prepared, stay safe and know where to find help should you need it.
