Planning and preparing properly for events like bushfires, storms, floods and extreme heat ensures that you are ready to react to minimise the impact on you and your loved ones. The Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District (ISLHD) encourages our community members to take the necessary steps to prepare themselves.
ISLHD works with partner agencies to prevent, prepare, respond to and recover from emergencies and major incidents. We provide representation on Local Emergency Management Committees across the District and support our emergency service partners during the response and recovery phases of emergencies.
Health advice is also available 24 hours a day from healthdirect Australia or by calling 1800 022 222.
For a medical, police or fire emergency call Triple Zero (000).
