Subject: Upcoming event: Disaster Recovery Workshop - Salvaging Your Documented Memories

 

Upcoming event:
Disaster Recovery Workshop - Salvaging Your Documented Memories

Come join us at Queensland State Archives on 18 May 2017 from 9 am to 4.30 pm for our free one day workshop on disaster recovery.

This workshop is just for members of the public and demonstrates how best to salvage documents after a disaster. Prepare to get wet and messy with a simulated disaster scenario – so no fancy clothes! Sturdy, closed in shoes are a must and the practical component will require a moderate level of mobility.

This workshop is only open to individual members of the public, with a maximum of 30 places available. Preservation Australia will start with some lecture style instruction, but then things start to get very hands on!

Light refreshments will be provided.

Places are limited, so only individual bookings will be accepted, no group bookings. We are also trialling the exciting Beam Pro technology and will be offering ONE workshop participant the opportunity to attend remotely, using our robotic stand-in.

Please go to Eventbrite to book your ticket for this great event.

Need more information about this event? Please email us at info@archives.qld.gov.au

sorry this is a little late...

Proserpine Museum: open for business

Today, volunteers at Proserpine Museum opened the doors for business for the first time since Cyclone Debbie. With many local businesses still closed and undergoing repairs, this reopening is great news for Proserpine.

Volunteers report that the building held strong during the cyclone. Although a small of amount of water got into one of the displays, there was very little damage – most of their collection was raised off the floor and this helped it to stay safe. Volunteers held a working bee to remove wet carpet and received assistance from the army to clean up the front of the building.

Rainfall in last 24hrs to 9am wednesday 29th March

Comment by Christine Ianna on March 29, 2017 at 12:08

Severe thunderstorms are likely to produce very heavy rainfall that will likely lead to flash flooding in the warning area over the next several hours. Locations which may be affected include Mackay, Sarina and in particular the ranges west of Mackay.
