In the case of a severe storm or other emergency situation impacting the Sunshine Coast:
- be prepared to look after yourself and your family for a minimum of a 72 hour period. Have enough food, water and medical supplies, and make contingency plans for the loss of electricity, cellphone and other services
- listen to local radio (i.e. COAST 91.7 FM) for emergency information. Coast FM is a part of the Sunshine Coast Emergency Preparedness program and is used to broadcast local emergency messaging, even during hours when local programing does not normally air.
