Water Minister Peter Walsh has released the Victorian Government’s plan to improve flood warning systems across the state.

Over this holiday period many Victorians will take to the roads, whether it is to visit family members and loved ones or to experience that perfect summer escape. The message Victoria SES would like to make remains the same: it is better to take your time, plan your trip, take regular breaks and ensure you arrive alive.

As you hop into your car this summer to go to a Christmas party with friends or family or head down to the beach, how will you drive to your destination? Are your children in the car with you? Will your loved ones be meeting you at your destination?

SES volunteer Irene Cracknell has been honoured at the National Volunteer Awards held earlier this month.

SES volunteers and staff engaged students from local ‘Horn of Africa’ communities, enhancing their knowledge of SES and what they should do to stay safe when faced with emergencies.

Communities across Victoria will be safer and more resilient, and emergency service agencies will be better prepared with the implementation of changes to the way emergencies are managed.

Victoria State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers will visit homes in the Yarra Ranges Shire this month to provide residents with information on how to prepare for the threat of flooding.
