Understanding the Need for Emergency Preparedness
Research conducted by NRMA Insurance reveals that many Australians lack a good understanding of extreme weather risks in their local areas. Shockingly, nearly one-third of Australians (32%) are unaware of these risks, and almost half (48%) do not know how to prepare for an extreme weather emergency. Furthermore, only 26% of Australians have an emergency plan in place to respond effectively to such events.
Equip Yourself with Knowledge and Tools
By attending the EmergencyRedi™ Workshop, you will gain valuable insights into the risks specific to your area and acquire the necessary knowledge and tools to prepare for future emergencies. During the workshop, you will create your own emergency RediPlan, which includes essential contacts, designated meeting places, animal plans, key documents, special items, medical information, and stress management strategies. With all your vital information in one emergency plan, you’ll be better equipped to handle any situation.
Help Nation: Uniting People for Preparedness
The expansion of the workshop is part of NRMA Insurance’s initiative called Help Nation. This program aims to bring together individuals, communities, and organizations across Australia to promote preparedness and raise awareness about local risks. By joining forces with Australian Red Cross, NRMA Insurance plans to deliver over 2,000 free EmergencyRedi™ Workshops in the next three years. This effort will help tens of thousands of Australians prepare for various emergencies, including extreme weather events.
