Cyclone season is fast approaching so now is the time to Get Ready Burdekin.
Burdekin Shire Council Mayor Bill Lowis said past weather events had shown the Burdekin community was very resilient.
“We have been through a few cyclones and flooding events in recent years and have recovered well. I believe it was our community spirit that helped with that,” he said.
“If we all pitch in and make sure we’re ready for cyclone season now, there won’t be such a rush later.
“Now is the time to clean up those dead branches and tidy up the yards. It’s free for non-commercial residents to take green waste to the Shire’s Waste Transfer Stations.
Burdekin Shire Council is holding two community stalls next week as part of RACQ Get Ready Queensland Week.
On Tuesday, October 14, outside the new Home Hill IGA and Wednesday, October 15, outside the old Crazy Clarks store in Queen Street, Ayr. Both stalls will be open from 9.30am to 2.30pm.
This is your chance to come along and learn how to prepare yourself, your family and your property for a cyclone or severe storm.
There will be Cyclone Tracking Maps and Emergency Kit Information available to residents.
