VICSES has developed Local Flood Guides to explain local flood risks for communities at risk. This includes advice for communities on how to prepare and respond to flood events and who to contact in the event of a flood.

We have also developed Municipal Flood Emergency Plans to prepare for, respond to and recover from flood events within the Municipality.
