What should you do in an emergency?
How can you prepare your family and your workplace for an emergency?
The Be prepared for an emergency website is a collaborative approach between Newcastle, Cessnock, Dungog, Maitland and Port Stephens Councils to provide information to residents and workers on how they can prepare for an emergency and what they should do in the event of an emergency.
The project to develop the website was conducted under the Natural Disaster Resilience Program. It has been jointly funded by the NSW and Commonwealth Governments in conjunction with the participating Councils.
