November 1 marks the official start to the annual cyclone season and Black Star Radio is making sure that listeners are prepared.
Australia Post and QRAM have got together to make a new series of radio segments encouraging everyone to be prepared for natural disasters. It’s thanks to Australia Post’s Our Neighbourhood Community Grant Program.
Julie Redmond, Australia Post’s Cairns Postal Manager launched the project at QRAM on Thursday. The series of eight segments will be heard on the Black Star Radio Network throughout the year and the launch is timely as we enter the wet season.
QRAM is looking forward to keeping the region informed and updated with any situation that develops that has potential to affect any of the communities it serves. Since the development of the Black Star Radio network, people living in remote Queensland have had access to a reliable service that stays with them throughout threatening events. This has been recognised by the State Government for it’s resilience and effective delivery into the Cape and Gulf regions and we look forward to extending this through the association with Australia Post.
