Here in the Clarence Valley, we're lucky to enjoy a subtropical climate and diverse and spectacular natural landscapes including river systems, bushland and beaches.
But like most of Australia, we are also prone to severe weather events - floods, bushfires, heatwaves and severe storms. The best way to minimise the impact of these is to be prepared.
As a council, we've invested in several projects to ensure the Clarence Valley is adequately prepared in the event of a flood or fire.
Do you know what you would do if a bushfire or flood was threatening your home? Creating a plan with your family is one of the best ways to make sure you'll be ready for natural disasters.
