Team Name: 
Hazard Busters

Our project is to help people (especially non-English speaking visitors/ migrants) better prepare and survive emergencies and disasters.

There is a growing number of non-English speaking visitors and migrants in Australia. When visiting or settling into a new region, it is hard to know what emergencies and disasters may be relevant.

It is also difficult to know how to best prepare and respond to an emergency that you have not experienced before. Some simple advice could save lifes. For example during a cyclone your bathroom is the safest room in the house and the bath is often the best place to place young children. 

We are using data sets about fire, flood and earthquakes from the National Map, Queensland Government Open Data Portal, GeoScience Australia and Queensland Globe.
