|Disasters such as bushfires, floods and storms, loss of utilities and risks to human and animal health can strike at any time - sometimes without warning. All disasters have the potential to cause disruption, damage property and take lives. |
For any fire or life threatening emergency, call Triple Zero (000)
Be prepared for any emergency
|We provide a range of information and links to websites and tools to assist all community members and visitors to be prepared for any emergency.|
Prepare now to protect yourself
|It is vital that you prepare now to protect yourself, your family, home, business and community.|
|Many disasters will affect essential services and possibly disrupt your ability to travel or communicate with one another. You may be confined to your home, or forced to evacuate your neighbourhood. |
In the immediate aftermath of a disaster, emergency services will not be able to get help to everyone as quickly as needed.
It rests with you to be prepared and to know what to do.
Emergency Management in Schools
|The Emergency Management in Schools website is a comprehensive emergency management resource for Australian students and teachers.|
