Lamb Island – Evacuation Information

Lamb Island – Evacuation Information

The first preference is for people to ‘shelter-in-place’ – stay where you are. Evacuations should only occur when the risk of sheltering in place is greater than the risk associated with leaving and moving to a place of lower risk.

Evacuation Centres/Assembly Areas/Helicopter Landing Sites

Evacuation Centres will be opened as demand requires. Information relating to the opening of Evacuation Centres will be announced via our information sources – please tune in to local radio – ABC 612AM and Bay FM 100.3 and follow updates on the Redland City Council news site, Twitter and Facebook.

For information relating to current evacuations, please contact Redland City Council on 3829 8999.

The Evacuation Centres are the primary assembly areas during a disaster and will often have an oval or parkland nearby for a helicopter landing site that provide quick access to the Evacuation Centre. Accordingly, latitude and longitude information has been provided for the Evacuation Centres that have adjoining land size suitable to accommodate a helicopter landing site.

Primary Evacuation Centre:

  • Lamb Island Pioneer Hall – Ph: 3409 5229 / 0429 099 215125 Lucas Drive, Lamb Island

Alternate Evacuation Centres (may be called upon to support as required):

  • Lamb Island Recreation Club – Ph: 3409 5832
    Lucas Drive, Lamb Island

If you need to evacuate, it is recommended that you seek shelter with family or friends in the first instance. If these options are not available to you, we will establish crises accommodation in the form of Evacuation Centres or another appropriate means of short-term accommodation. When evacuating from your home, your chosen evacuation route should always be the most direct and safest route available, be aware of possible localised flooding.  Please tune in to ABC 612AM and Bay FM 100.3 for warnings of road closures and follow updates on the Redland City Council news site, Twitter and Facebook.

Remember: If it’s flooded, forget it!
