Be prepared

Don’t wait until it’s too late – get ready now

You’ll see them all the time; people who have left it too late to get ready and are relying on the State Emergency Service (SES) for help. By preparing ourselves better before disaster hits, we can help take the strain off the SES and let them focus on those who need help the most.

Ensure any preparedness activities conducted in or around your property boundary adhere to the local council bi-laws. To find your local council click here.

If you are holidaying or travelling to an unfamiliar location, contact your holiday accommodation manager, or check the local council website for information on the local emergency and evacuation plan. Find the local council of your destination here.
