As with previous years, Christmas Extravaganza, hosted by Greenbank Rural Fire Service, will be a massive night. But this year it is going to be even BIGGER. They have added a movie to the night after the fabulous fireworks. So come along to this FREE kid-friendly event, and bring the family, neighbours and friends to spend a wonderful night with your local fire-fighters. Now that sounds like my Christmas wish come true.

Are You Ready?
Get READY!
Be ready for FIRE, STORMS, FLOOD, and other EMERGENCIES.

Brisbane's subtropical climate makes our city prone to severe weather and a range of natural disasters and hazards. Are you prepared? There will be Fire Engines, Police, SES, Ambulance and local emergency services on hand on the night informing you on what to do in the event of an emergency.
For further information about the event, check out their Facebook page here.

Are You Prepared?
A natural disaster can occur anywhere and at any time, so prepare your family, pets and property by taking simple actions as advised by Brisbane City Council and the emergency services. Take it from me (a survivor of the 2011 floods), it's important to prepare your household for severe weather emergencies. Make a PLAN with your family, share it and practice it. While you are at it, prepare an Emergency Kit for your home (you can find checklists online). Don't forget to consider your baby, children and pet needs, as well as ensuring important documents are kept safe.

Tips for Storm Safety
Before the summer storm season begins, prepare your emergency kit.
Trim your tree branches well clear of your house.
Check and clear your gutters and downpipes from leaves and other debris.
Identify loose objects in your yard such as outdoor furniture and toys that will need to be put away or secured if a storm is approaching.
When the storm strikes, stay inside away from windows.
Listen to your portable radio for storm updates, official warnings and advice.
After the storm, be aware of damaged buildings, trees and floodwaters.
Stay away from fallen power lines. Report them to Energex on 13 19 62.
