SES Street Speaks head to Straddie

Redland City Council is heading to Straddie on Saturday 17 June in its latest effort to help people be prepared for natural disasters such as storms and bushfires.

The Straddie ‘Street Speaks’ displays will run in each township on the Island from 8am – 12pm and give people the chance to meet front-line emergency staff.

At the three Straddie Street Speaks, there will be Straddie Fire and State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers as well as members of Council’s own Emergency Management Team.

People can ask questions about how to best prepare their own properties, as well as learn more about all the work these groups do for our community.

Residents will also be able to take away a copy of the Redland City Disaster Management Plan, with suburb-specific information all residents should know about how to prepare for, respond to and recover from natural disaster events.

 Straddie Street Speaks will be held across the three townships from 8am – 12pm on Saturday 17 May 2017:

  • Amity: Amity General Dealers, Ballow Street
  • Dunwich: Island Fruit Barn, Bingle Road
  • Point Lookout: Point Lookout Newsagency, Mintee Street
