Extreme weather events are on the rise. Floods, storms, fires and heatwaves can damage your home and force you to leave for a period of time. Such events are disruptive, yet we can reduce the stress and hardship that follows by taking some simple steps now.

While storms can happen at any time of the year, between October and March, NSW sees increased chances of strong winds and heavy rain, which risks floods and flash floods. Extreme heat can be equally as dangerous, but when temperatures climb there are things you can do to stay safe and healthy, and help others.
