East Coast Low July 2020

After the heavy rainfall this weekend some areas experienced flooding - did you know we have a free flood alert service that will notify you when there is a high risk of flooding in your area? Register for the flood alert service.

During a flood event tune into ABC Newcastle or please call NSW SES on 132 500 for the most up to date information.

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, DungogMaitland 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.
