Guide to Natural Disasters in NSW

Go​​vern​ment, you and what to do

Across NSW, and indeed Australia, all communities have to deal with natural disasters. While some of us deal with floods or bushfires depending on seasonal factors, most of us deal with storms in some shape or form during the course of a year.

Government, you and what to do - A Guide to Natural Disasters in NSW provides information on what to do before, during and after a natural disaster.

It provides tips, checklists and actions on:

  1. What natural hazards we face in NSW
  2. Community and natural disasters - How to find out what hazards might impact on you; How to find out what vulnerable members of the community might need your help; and Volunteering
  3. What you can do before a natural disaster occurs
