Let’s build a disaster-resilient Australia. TAKE THE QUIZ SIGN THE PLEDGE

BEING PREPARED IS VITAL AT EVERY LEVEL.

Red Cross has been supporting people and communities through disasters for more than a century. And, if there is one thing we’ve learned, it’s the importance of planning and preparedness. By understanding the risks associated with disasters, we can better protect ourselves, our families, and our communities.

A string of disasters has left many Australians feeling overwhelmed. The increased frequency and severity of these events have made recovery more difficult. Recovery doesn’t happen overnight; it is a long-term journey that can take years. But being prepared means you feel more in control, make good decisions, and are better for your mental health in the long term.

Take our quiz today and check how well-equipped your household and community are to prepare, respond, and recover from crises.

“Going through a disaster, affects you so much more deeply, mentally and emotionally than you could ever expect”, says Peter who lost his home to the fires. “Surviving day to day, staying sane, staying positive and just looking after your own wellbeing takes so much of your energy”.
