Green Cross launches new website to assist ACT residents to be disaster ready

The website ACT First helps to create empowered communities who are aware of their risks and are better prepared to respond to - and survive - severe weather events or natural disasters.

The website is an easy to use, personalised online resource to help residents of the Australian Capital Territory prepare for natural disasters. It aims to boost readiness and resilience with customised preparedness information for each user. ACT First has been developed by Green Cross Australia with a partnership with the ACT Government and support from the Australia National University; it is funded by the Natural Disaster Resilience Program.
