School visits

Our Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES) volunteers run free visits to Victorian primary schools, to ensure our young students know how to stay safe in an emergency.

VICSES recognises that children and young people can make substantial contributions to household and community resilience.

The aim of the school visit is to assist primary and secondary students to develop an understanding and awareness of the dangers of floods and storms, and learn practical ways to prepare for severe weather events.

The school visit engages students in an interactive, collaborative learning experience and can be tailored to different age groups. The program runs for approximately 30-45 minutes.

Learn how to plan and effectively respond to emergencies at school, and head to our plan and stay safe page or our educational activities page for more. Further questions? Email the VICSES Community Engagement Team at
