Staying Safe During Storm Season

By Anna Chapman

With another intense storm season approaching we have provided the following checklist to help you prepare and manage before, during and after a storm.

Before storm season

  • Tidy up loose items, including outdoor furniture and trim any trees that are close to the property. Do not attempt to trim trees close to power lines, and contact your property manager if the trees are too large for you to trim safely.
  • Keep a battery operated radio handy to listen for power restoration updates.
  • Keep a torch handy in case power supply is interrupted.
  • Keep spare batteries for torches and radio.
  • Charge your laptop/notebook computer so you can check for power outage updates.
  • Charge your mobile phone or have access to a phone that doesn’t require mains power to operate.
  • Register for early sever warning alerts at Australian Early Warning Network, Moreton Bay Early Warning Alert System or Brisbane City Council’s Early Warning Alert Service.
  • Add/Follow QLD Police Service and SES QLD on Facebook and Twitter for ongoing updates.

During a storm

  • If power is lost, turn off and unplug electrical items.
  • Listen to a local radio station for updates on power restoration.
  • For your safety, always use a torch for light if you have lost power and avoid using candles and flames.
  • Do not use wet or damp electrical items.

After a storm

  • Stay away from fallen power lines.
  • Alert other people to any danger.
  • Call Energex on 13 19 62 to report fallen power lines or loss of supply.
  • Call SES on 132 500 to have any immediate roof leaks temporarily repaired.
  • Contact your property manager with any damage to the property.
  • Disclaimer:
