General Information

Emergencies and disasters can occur with little or no warning so it's important that everyone in the community prepares for such an event.

The priority of Civil Defence is public safety, reducing the loss of life and injury, and relieving the distress of those affected by the disaster. Civil Defence is often involved in localised events such as floods and storms, monitoring conditions throughout the troubled district, tracking weather patterns and keeping an overview to ensure safety.

 If a state of Civil Defence is in force, you must follow all instructions given by emergency services and civil defence.
