A Message From Mackay's Mayor Greg Williamson

What a wonderful community event this Emergency Services Day is. Thank you to RACQ CQ Rescue for putting it together.

RACQ CQ Rescue is an organisation that is now part of the very fabric of our community. To have this vital service delivered professionally with modern equipment gives us a level of confidence that we would now find it impossible to live without.

We live in Mackay because we love it, but living in the North Queensland tropics means we can be tested from time to time by severe weather events.

The clear message is as always: we should not be alarmed - just prepared.

Mackay Regional Council runs the Local Disaster Management Group (LDMG) which I chair, and Council has full time staff employed in an Emergency Management team. Our goal is to ensure that organisations, businesses, residents and visitors to our region are prepared to endure whatever emergency threatens our community.

We do that by providing all the information needed through the new Emergency Management dashboard on our website or via our Emergency Action Guide.

Council’s Cyclone Saturday in December focusses of course on cyclone preparedness and is always very well supported. We are very pleased to take part in events like this inaugural Emergency Services Day, organised by RACQ CQ Rescue, because we know that a community that knows what to do when the going gets tough is a community which will survive.

It is fitting this event is being held a little over 12 months on from Cyclone Debbie and before the end of the current storm season. Our Emergency Management team will be on hand to answer any questions as well.

Congratulations to RACQ CQ Rescue for the initiative.

Mayor Greg Williamson
Mackay Regional Council
