Every year people are hurt or die trying to cross or play in flooded waterways. It can happen anywhere – roads, creeks, dams, parks or backyards.
All Queenslanders should be aware of the dangers around floodwater or swift flowing water. When things go wrong, rescuers are required to put their lives at risk to save others.
Never enter floodwaters and discourage others from doing so. For information about being safe around flood waters please visit the Queensland Fire and Rescue website.
Always remember – If it is Flooded, forget it.
If you are aware of any issues such as fallen trees, road wash-outs, etc that may pose a potential risk to community safety please contact Council Ph: 07 4099 9444.
