Well summer is almost upon us and I am reminded of a poem by Dorothea McKeller
I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror
The wide brown land for me!
The poem is called My Country
I also love Australia, but there are plenty of potential terrors
As well as the large disasters such as Floods, Bush Fires, Cyclones, there are many events that may be a disaster to you on a more personal level. . . . . so are you prepared?
Have you thought
- How you might react in an emergency?
- What you might need?
- How your pets would be protected?
- What is valuable to you?
Well the Red Cross, who have had a lot of experience in disasters, have provided some very useful information.
