Brisbane City Council provides Floodwise Property Report for your property (free) and information on how to be floodwise.
A few simple steps can help you prepare your family and property for severe weather and potential flooding.
Subscribe to the Brisbane Early Warning Alert service to receive severe weather alerts by email, SMS or landline by calling Council on 3403 8888
Trim tree branches so they are well clear of your house and clean your gutters and downpipes. You can dispose of your green waste for free at the Ferny Grove Waste Transfer Station for free every weekend in October (if you live in BCC). When a storm approaches, clear your yard of loose objects such as toys and outdoor furniture.
Prepare an emergency kit. This kit should contain a battery operated radio, torch, spare batteries, first aid kit and emergency contact numbers.
Get a Floodwise Property Report to find out if your property is at risk of flooding and download a Flood Flag Map for your suburb. www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/floodwise
Residents need to be careful when a storm approaches. On receiving an early warning alert, shelter and secure pets, put vehicles under cover and tune into your local radio station for updates.
Beware of fallen powerlines, don't drive through floodwaters and keep children away from stormwater drains and floodwaters during and after a storm or downpour.
