It's easy to be prepared, and there are many ways you can help your clients. Often, just talking about being prepared for an emergency can prompt people to plan and take action.
You can also incorporate emergency preparedness into routine home visits or regular group activities. Becoming prepared works best when you and your clients do it together, helping them to understand what to do
after an emergency.
Red Cross helps clients be better prepared for emergencies by partnering with Fire & Rescue NSW to help clients get their smoke alarm batteries changed. They also send out heat wave information at the start of summer.
