It’s time to prepare for cyclone season
Published on 22 October 2020
With the wet season almost upon us, the Shire of Broome would like to urge the community to start to prepare for wet and windy weather.
Our town witnesses several cyclonic events each year, with the potential for substantial damage to properties and possessions.
The Shire offers residents the chance to dispose of household materials at the Broome Waste Management Facility free of charge over two weekends – this year the days are October 31 and November 1, 7 and 8.
The community of Broome is encouraged to tidy their properties up in preparation for wet season and make use of the free waste disposal days.
Shire Rangers will be visiting properties where there is a concern of loose materials to ensure occupants are making their properties safe.
The Local Emergency Management Committee also recently hosted a wet season preparation session at the Shire of Broome, with a presentation from the Bureau of Meteorology and Department of Fire and Emergency Services.
Shire of Broome president Harold Tracey said it was important for residents to have a cyclone plan in place and be prepared for the wet season.
