Disasters and Emergencies
Like all regions across Australia, depending on the time of year, prevailing weather or circumstances such as location beside a major highway, there is the risk of a disaster or emergency happening on the Sunshine Coast. If you are fit and healthy it is your responsibility to prepare your home, yourself, your pets and others to minimise disruption to your lifestyle.
