Ipswich City Council is dedicated to providing our community with a broad range of information that promotes and enables residents, including the most vulnerable, to be aware of, prepare for, remain safe during, and move forward after, a disaster or emergency. One way we do this is through a range of outreach activities.


  • Get Ready Queensland Chatterbox (PDF, 1.2 MB)
  • Get Ready Queensland Colouring Sheets (PDF, 3.2 MB)
  • Ipswich City Council TV: suite of short emergency management videos on Council's YouTube channel
  • Natural Hazards Educator Guide (PDF, 5.0 MB): a self-organised in-class activities to engage students from Prep to Year 6 to learn about natural hazards and the emergency responses considered to them. The booklet links to the Australian Curriculum for key Science, Humanities and Social Sciences, English, the Arts, and Health and Physical Education learning areas
  • Picture Ipswich: a digital archive of images from around the local government area. This Ipswich Libraries initiative includes picture trails (or categories) on floods, accidents and disasters, as well as a range of other topics such as people, military, places, houses, home movies, sport and recreation, business and industry, and the environment.
