The Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES) has developed a number of flood guides (for residents and business owners) and emergency plans (for municipalities) to explain local flood risks for communities at risk and advise on how to prepare for and respond to flood events.

To view plans and guides, find your local council on the map (hover over an area to see details) and click to go to its page.
