Profile

The Bundaberg region is prone to emergency events such as when severe flooding from ex-Tropical Cyclone Oswald affected more than 7,500 people and flooded 3,000 homes in January 2013. The grant will fund culturally appropriate resources and materials to communicate disaster preparedness information among Indigenous people. Red Cross will also provide training and guidance to volunteers, so they can share disaster resilience information.
