Preparing for a flood or storm

Storms and floods can pose a serious threat to property and life, and can occur at any time of the year. 

The Victoria State Emergency Service (SES) is the control agency for flood, storm, landslide, tsunami and earthquake emergencies.  

Being adequately prepared for a flood can reduce the risk of significant damage to your property, and keep you and your family safe. It may also mean that the cleanup and recovery from a flood is easier to manage. 

For flood-specific preparation advice, visit Get Ready – Flood on the Victorian SES website.
