Are you prepared for an emergency?

Emergencies can happen at any time. They can be as large as a bushfire, flood or cyclone or as personal as a death in the family. But the better you prepare for them, the easier it is for you and your family to recover.

RediPlan is a free disaster preparedness guide that will get you prepared for any emergency in four simple steps. RediPlan helps you:

• learn about the risks you face and how they might affect you
• make an emergency survival kit to help you through a disaster
• take action now to protect the important things in life
• create your personal emergency plan to help you when disaster strikes.

If you haven't prepared and made a plan, an emergency could disrupt your life in ways you don't expect. Get prepared and you'll be more confident, more in control and more likely to cope when disaster strikes.
