The Western Downs Mayor says residents will be safer after the installation of new flood warning devices.
The region's flood warning network will be extended to cover the towns of Chinchilla, Jandowae and Warra.
The council says new weather stations will be installed thanks to a $260,000 State Government grant.
Mayor Ray Brown says the work will be done as soon as possible.
He says the stations are critical in predicting flood heights.
