Natural disaster and emergency plan
Preparing a diabetes emergency plan and kit can help you avoid life-threatening situations in an emergency or natural disaster.
No matter where you live in Australia, severe weather events and natural disasters can happen anytime—especially in summer. Whether you live in a bushfire zone, cyclone region or city, it’s important to have a diabetes emergency plan and kit so you can:
- self-manage your diabetes in the event of an emergency
- reduce the impact of the emergency
- recover more quickly after an emergency.
