The ES&S site is part of the Q-Gov ‘single web’ experience. It is a ‘one stop shop’ for Queenslanders to access emergency and disaster-related information, including links to more popular, credible, trusted and well designed digital tools and websites. The site features useful tools, guides and tips to help Queenslanders better prepare, respond and recover when disasters occur.
Queensland communities have access to localised disaster management information via the website’s Community Intelligence Map. This map aims to improve situational awareness with ‘layers’ of local information including storm tide gauges, school locations, and SES groups. As the map continues to develop, additional layers will be added.
The site also provides easy options for individuals and businesses to offer help before, during and after a disaster. Using the Community Emergency Inventory resource, businesses can contribute equipment, supplies or services that may be needed.
The Emergency Services and Safety website was developed in co-operation with Queensland Police, Queensland Ambulance, Queensland Fire and Rescue Service, Queensland State Emergency Services, Emergency Management Queensland and Smart Services Queensland.
