Ready Check Tool

Extreme weather events such as bushfires, storms, floods and heatwaves by their very nature can be chaotic and lead to unexpected situations that can cause damage, injury or death. These unexpected events can threaten the safety of your family, loved ones, pets and property.

The Ready Check tool will help you assess your unique situation and generate information to make your household more resilient to the unforeseen events. When you make your plan you can test it with the “What if” scenarios.
