RACQ Get Ready Queensland (RACQ GRQ) is the State's year-round, all-hazards disaster preparedness and resilience building program. It aims to position Queensland as Australia's most disaster-resilient State, integrate all preparedness activities year round under one brand and to engage all Queenslanders to participate. This is achieved through partnerships with local councils, public education and useful resources.
Funding is available each year for councils under the RACQ Get Ready Queensland Resilience Initiative to help councils conduct community events, such as:
- RACQ Get Ready Queensland week: 10 – 16 October 2016
- RACQ Get Ready Queensland day: 10 October 2016
- RACQ Get Ready Queensland community day: 16 October 2016
- Resilient Australia Awards: 15 September 2016
