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.
VICSES has also developed Municipal Flood Emergency Plans to prepare, respond to and recover from flood events within Municipality.
Swan Hill Rural City Council has a history of flooding including a significant flood event in the Robinvale area in 1956 and as recent as 2010 which impacted the township of Robinvale and vast extents of rural areas resulting in extensive damage.
The lead time to respond to a flood event may be limited. All households and businesses at risk of flooding should develop an emergency plan and beware of their flood risk.
Households and business should refer to their Local Flood Guide or Municipal Flood Emergency Plan for more information.
