A big step forward for disaster resilience with the Emergency Response Fund Amendment (Disaster Ready Fund) Bill 2022 introduced to Parliament, which will help get money flowing for critical work across Queensland council areas.  $200 million a year in disaster prevention and resilience national funding will go towards prevention measures such as flood levees, sea walls, cyclone shelters, evacuation centres, fire breaks and telecommunications improvements.
