SBS has launched a new ‘Summer Safety’ resource targeted especially at culturally and linguistically diverse Australians. The website offers expert information on summer dangers from bushfire and flood preparedness to staying sun-safe and water-safe in Australia.
Australia’s diverse communities often face additional language challenges when receiving messages around preparedness and emergency. This resource was developed following consultation with the Rural Fire Service, the Country Fire Authority, the Bureau Of Meteorology and peak disaster and fire coordination services The Australasian Fire and Emergency Service Authorities Council and Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience.
‘Summer Safety’ will also assist emergency services in their outreach and build disaster resilience and knowledge in Australia’s diverse communities.
Help your community staying safe this summer and share the resource with them!
