Flooding near the Queensland Tennis Centre

Emergency broadcasting information in light of ongoing flooding

Joshua Cole, 21st October 2022

Our thoughts are with everyone impacted by the ongoing flooding across Australia, and we hope that your friends, families, colleagues and communities are staying safe.

We have heard reports of studios suffering structural damage or even being unable to broadcast, and of course there is the psychic toll that disaster can take on communities, including those who report on them.

With that in mind, CBAA has a range of resources for stations that are considering or already engaged in emergency broadcasting, covering everything from the basics how to handle the trauma and stress that can build while reporting on challenging circumstances.

Those all can be found here.

Quick Response Grants from the Community Broadcasting Foundation

If your facilities have been damaged by a natural disaster your station may be eligible for a quick response grant to cover the cost of essential equipment and related expenses to restore basic transmission. To find out more and apply for a grant get in touch with the Community Broadcasting Foundation or click here.

Increasingly community broadcasters are taking on the responsibility of providing warnings and other information to their communities in times of emergency.
