Council calls for community feedback
In the wake of Tropical Cyclone Debbie, Isaac Regional Council is seeking feedback from residents on Isaac’s disaster management efforts.
The region-wide survey will ask residents what they currently know, need to know, and where they gather information during disaster events.
Open Monday September 11 to Friday September 22, survey participants will also be in to win a $100 voucher.
Isaac Local Disaster Management Group Chair and Mayor Anne Baker said community feedback is vital.
“Your responses help us understand how we can better serve our communities during times of need,” she said.
“When Tropical Cyclone Debbie reached Isaac, how prepared were you and your family?
“Where did you go for help and information both during and after the event?
“As a region we’ve just been through one of the most challenging disaster events in recent memory.
“Moving through the recovery process it’s crucial to reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of our disaster management approach.
“I encourage everyone living in Isaac to take part in the survey and help us improve our ability to prepare, respond and recover during a disaster.
“As a thank you for completing in the survey, one participant will win a $100 voucher*.”
The online survey will be open Monday September 11 to Friday September 22 at www.isaac.qld.gov.au/isaacdisastersurvey with hardcopies available at Isaac Regional Council Offices.
*Only permanent Isaac residents are eligible to enter the survey and $100 voucher draw.
