Wollondilly Shire Council has partnered with Ku-ring-gai Council to launch the Get Ready Wollondilly website, as part of the award-winning Climate Wise Communities initiative.
Climate Wise Communities was developed by Ku-ring-gai Council in consultation with emergency management agencies and government. It has been localised with Wollondilly content to support residents to prepare for natural disasters including bushfire, flood, storm and heatwave.
The key objectives of the website are to:
- Raise awareness of local risk factors
- Promote shared responsibility for extreme weather events
- Build communication/social networks that enable communities to prepare, respond and recover from extreme weather events.
The website has links to emergency Combat Agencies including: NSW Police, NSW Ambulance, NSW Fire and Rescue, Rural Fire Service, State Emergency Service, Volunteer Rescue Association and Wollondilly Shire Council.
