How to feel confident in an emergency

Prepare a plan with this great tool from the Red Cross.

Emergencies are almost impossible to predict.

You can recover faster from a disaster if you’re prepared.

It can be daunting to know where to start.

To make it easier for you, we highly recommend you:

1. Download the free Get Prepared app by Australian Red Cross  

The app builds on many years of work done by the Red Cross to help prepare you physically and psychologically for disaster. It will help you review the risks relevant to where you live.

2. Work through your plan and share it

Establish a network of support with 3 key contacts. Share your plan with the people you know and can ask for help in an emergency.

An emergency RediPlan for your household should identify all members of your household, including pets. It makes note of essential information, like ongoing medical issues or crucial identifiers which may be necessary in an emergency.

Share your emergency plan with people you know and can ask for help

3. Complete the simple checklists and get your kit together

The step by step emergency survival checklist includes necessary household items, like a first aid kit, lights and copies of important documents. Assembling your survival kit doesn’t have to be a chore. It can be turned into a fun family activity and any kids in the home can help.

As a participating council in the Resilient Sydney program, we’re committed to helping our residents prepare for crises.
