Updated feed of the latest news from Victoria State Emergency Service


With recent floods impacting communities across the state, there are a number of things that you can do to make sure you and your property stay safe during flooding.

The new VicEmergency app will provide the community another channel to access warnings and incidents for fires, floods, storms, earthquake, tsunamis and water safety.

With flooding continuing in parts of the State, it’s important for Victorians to plan ahead to get the most out of their school holidays.

Flood warnings are still current across most of the state and Victorians are likely to get little respite with more heavy rain expected early next week.

Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES) is urging Victorians to prepare for heavy rain which has already entered the far south west of the state and is expected to sweep across the state through the remainder of today and into Friday 9 September 2016.

The Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES) has developed a three-year plan to build disaster resilience in Victorian communities. Minister for Emergency Services James Merlino today launched the VICSES Community Resilience Strategy at the Warrnambool SES headquarters.

We are pleased to commend the VICSES Community Resilience Strategy to all volunteers and staff. The Strategy will be officially launched in the coming week - further details will be provided when finalised!
