Brisbane Flood

Role of the Queensland Reconstruction Authority

When a natural disaster is imminent or while it is taking place, it is important to follow the direction and advice of emergency services personnel.

Following the disaster event, the Authority will work closely with the relevant regional councils, non-government organisations and federal and state government agencies to begin the process of reconstruction as quickly as possible.
