SES Natural Hazards Safety Program
Li'L Larikkins are a group of friends having big adventures and learning about natural hazards in a small outback town. In these videos you will get to meet Amy, Trev and Jimmy as well as Tucka a crazy Irish rabbit, Maddy the Koala and Bob the dog who thinks he's a superhero.
Victoria State Emergency Service (SES) has lots of information available for students working on a school project. This page will help you learn about what we do, our history and how to plan, prepare and stay safe during emergencies and disasters.
Paddy the Platypus is an SES volunteer. His job is to visit festivals, schools and other special events to help spread important safety messages to children all across Australia.
Activities and games
Have fun with our new FloodSafe Game, puzzles, mazes and colouring pages and learn about how you can help SES keep you safe during an emergency.
VICSES are encouraging children to use the Red Cross Children’s Activity Book. This book is free to download and is a fun way to help kids prepare for an emergency.
Children’s Health Queensland Hospital and Health Service with Queensland Centre for Perinatal and Infant Mental Health have put together a series of children’s books for natural disasters.
Two of these books focus on flood and earthquakes. These natural disasters can be very frightening and upsetting for babies and young children. Reading a story with a caring adult can help a young child work through the scary experiences and ‘big feelings’.
There’s information for parents and carers too. The authors encourage children to come and meet Birdie and Mr Frog!
