Disasters and emergencies

Redland City Council adopted a new version of the Redland City Local Disaster Management Plan in September 2023. This plan outlines how Council will assist the community, and work with other emergency agencies, on disaster prevention, preparedness, response and recovery across our City.

Before a disaster

Sign up for Redlands Coast Alerts

Redlands Coast residents can opt in for Council’s free emergency notification messaging service.

Redlands Coast Alerts complements other emergency notification systems, such as those offered by the Bureau of Meteorology and Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES). 

Through Redlands Coast Alerts, residents can sign up to receive:

  • Community Alert – which will be sent to registered residents when there is potentially dangerous weather which may impact them.
  • Flood warnings for four local roads – Allan Day Drive, Wellington Point; Avalon Road, Sheldon; Moores Road, Redland Bay; and the corner of Nelson Road and Pitt Road, Wellington Point.
  • Bureau of Meteorology warnings and alerts (by email only).

Be prepared:

Familiarise yourself with disaster information for your suburb or island, including:

  • evacuation information and routes
  • safe places in your neighbourhood
  • roads that may flood
  • emergency services
  • natural hazards and critical infrastructure
  • demographic information
  • suburb overview, history and major features.
