State Member for Redlands Mr Peter Dowling today encouraged the Redlands community to be storm ready and prepare a household emergency evacuation plan and keep a set of essential Emergency telephone numbers handy.
Mr Dowling said, “If members of the public do need assistance, they should call 132 500 to request the assistance of their local SES groups.
If the matter is life-threatening then the best number to call is Triple Zero (000).”
The SES have trained staff who will take all of the relevant details and direct the nearest SES group or unit to respond and SES volunteers are also on stand-by to assist should the need arise.”
“I strongly urge members of the public to stay away from flooded creeks and streams and roads that have experienced flooding and to stay safe this Summer.” said Mr Dowling.
“The clock is ticking. It’s time for a change. It’s time to get Queensland back on track.”
