Changes to web site (posted 12 Nov 2017)
You may notice that when you are signed in to this web site, it is now “secure”, with the address bar at the top containing a locked padlock, the word Secure and the address starting with HTTPS: This is for the benefit of those who use Google Chrome as a web browser. Google has decided to tighten its rules on websites that don’t have an SSL certificate installed (don’t start with https and don’t encrypt network traffic between user computer and website server). In other words if a website doesn’t have an SSL certificate installed Google Chrome will throw up a warning about the website not being secured. No doubt other web browsers will eventually follow suit.
This change won’t adversely affect anybody or anything on the web site. It will reduce the chance of the site being hacked and so not be spreading viruses and spam emails, which is a good thing.

TRC Disaster Management Talk (posted 25 October 2017)
Sarah Dean from the Tablelands Regional Council gave an excellent presentation today on the way disaster management is co-ordinated on the Tablelands. Amongst the many gems was an invitation to subscribe to the early Warning Network to receive alerts for severe weather and other emergency events. Alerts will come by email and SMS, although there is the ability to send voice alerts if required. Join now and become better prepared for emergency events. Subscribe now by clicking here.
Another very useful link is the Emergency Management Dashboard, where information is posted on topics such as Road Closures, Power Outages, Current Emergencies and cyclone preparedness. Links to the dashboard can be found in the Links to Other Sites or Weather page above.
