Be StormSafe Before a Storm Hits


The Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES) is the control agency for storms in Victoria, which means that we are responsible for planning for storms and for managing storm response if they do occur.

Storms can happen anywhere, at any time of year and are often accompanied by strong winds, large hailstones and lightning. Storms cost Victorians an average of $28 million each year, and can cause significant damage to homes, businesses and community infrastructure.
