2011 Floods: Radio interview on ABC overnights

Following the devastating Queensland and Victorian floods in early 2011, I undertook a radio interview on the ABC overnights program. This interview focused on the preparedness of the community, specifically in relation to health needs. I discussed the need for people to be ‘health prepared’ and to ensure strategies are in place for individuals, families and communities to care for themselves during a disaster or emergency situation. I highlighted the need for people to have a basic understanding of first aid, a stocked first aid kit, and in particular, for individuals to have an accurate list of medications and previous medical history accessible.
