As a council, it's our role to assist in emergency management, bushfire prevention, preparedness and recovery.
Head to the Clarence Valley Disaster Dashboard for live and essential information on local flood, fire, and health events, plus road closures and more.
Like most of Australia, the Clarence Valley is prone to severe weather events including floods, bushfires, heatwaves and severe storms. The best way to minimise their impact is to be prepared.
Find emergency contacts and local resources for fire, flood and heatwaves, plus information on the COVID-19 pandemic.
Recovery from floods, bushfires and other natural disasters can be a long and sometimes overwhelming process. We're committed to helping our residents along the way.
The information on Live Traffic NSW is based on the information collected at discrete points in time, it is not a representation of the real-time status of roads.
Our Resilient Clarence program captures and shares examples of local resilience after the 2019/20 bushfires. Through community-led workshops and events, those impacted can support and inspire each other, build capacity, reconnect with nature and share (cultural) knowledge.
In the event of a disaster it is essential we have clear roles and responsibilities. This plan details our arrangements and response to emergencies.
