Gold Coast Weekly | Issue #14 | Get Ready

While the Gold Coast is known for it's sunny climate, we also experience our fair share of natural disasters. 

Issue #14: How prepared are you and your family for severe weather? In this week's edition, we're inviting you to take our Get Ready survey, bringing you details on how we're honouring World War I personnel and reminding you to report graffiti around the city.

Get Ready Survey

Do you have a plan to protect what is most important to you?

While the Gold Coast is a famous holiday destination, renowned for its sunny weather, it also has its fair share of natural disasters.

Being prepared for these disasters can help safeguard your family, pets and property against the impacts of severe storms, cyclones, floods, bushfires and pandemics.

Households that are well prepared before a natural disaster occurs are more resilient and are able to recover faster.

Do you have a plan to protect what is most important to you? Do you know the risks in your local area? We are inviting you to take the Disaster Preparedness Survey before 8 May, for your chance to win a $500 Eftpos Voucher* (Terms and conditions apply)

Your views will help us shape the City’s future Disaster Management programs .

Street signs to honour World War I personnel

Street signs to honour World War I personnel

We are proud to remember and honour World War I service personnel through the Streets of Remembrance project.

The Streets of Remembrance project has been developed to build community spirit and honour World War I service and auxiliary personnel with a Gold Coast connection.

Through extensive research, the project identified 23 local streets which were named after, or have an important link, with people who served in World War I. Paying tribute to their service, these streets have had their signs rebadged in time for ANZAC Day 2022.

Streets rebadged with the Australian Defence Force ‘Rising Sun’ emblem honour World War I service personnel and streets rebadged with an image of a poppy (a symbol of remembrance) honour local pioneer families whose family members served in World War I.
