Get ready: preparing for emergencies

Experience shows that those who plan and prepare for emergencies can reduce the impact of the emergency, and can recover quicker afterwards.

At home

Experience shows that those who plan and prepare for emergencies can reduce the impact of the emergency, and can recover quicker afterwards. Taking the time to think about emergencies and making a plan helps you to think clearly, have a greater sense of control, and make better decisions when an emergency occurs. Learn more about the preparing for emergencies at home.

At work

It’s not just homes that can be affected by natural hazards; they may also be a risk to your business. Think of how much you could lose in stock, equipment and fittings due to a flood, along with the profits you could lose for the days and weeks it might take you to clean up after the flood.

On the road

For over 20 years, Driver Reviver has been a national campaign with one objective: to reduce road collisions by alleviating driver fatigue. VICSES volunteers and Lions Club members operate sites around Victoria on holiday weekends and peak traffic days offering motorists a safe place to stop and refresh. Learn more about the preparing for emergencies on the road.
