2020 was a year like no other. Unlike in many parts of the world, in Queensland we have been fortunate to have the ability to move around and see loved ones over Christmas and enjoy the fruits of living in the paradise which is our great state.
The new year period always brings challenges, however, and this year is no different. In addition to taking the extra personal precautions with COVID we have all become accustomed to (social distancing, electronic check-ins, handwashing, cough-etiquette, etc.) we should not forget the usual list of precautions every Queenslander has become accustomed to taking at this time of year.
Fires and thunderstorms can be unpredictable and can occur with little warning and can strike with astonishing severity. Prepare your plan early and have your emergency supplies ready if the worst occurs.
To help you, the Queensland Government has prepared a checklist of the important steps you should take to be ready. The information can be accessed at the Get Ready Portal here: www.getready.qld.gov.au
The Palaszczuk Government’s pipeline of education infrastructure delivery is well underway in the Ferny Grove Electorate from Ferny Hills to Newmarket.
Many of the $57 million worth of education investments which have already been budgeted will be ready for the start of the 2021 school year with many more to come in a continuous stream of new construction jobs and infrastructure for our community over the coming months.
