Emergencies and disasters

During an emergency or disaster it's important to know who you can call for help, or how you can get the latest update on emergency situations.

Arrangements for, prevention of, preparation for, response to and recovery from emergencies with the Maitland Local Government Area are covered by the Maitland Local Emergency Management Plan

Ready 123

The Ready123 website provides information to our communities on how they can prepare for an emergency and what they should do in the event of an emergency.

This website is a collaboration between CessnockDungog, Maitland and Port Stephens Councils to provide information to our communities on how they can prepare for an emergency and what they should do in the event of an emergency.

The project to develop the website was conducted under the Natural Disaster Resilience Program. It has been jointly funded by the NSW and Commonwealth Governments in conjunction with the participating councils.
