Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES) sees the media as a vital partner in emergency management and values the important role the media has in informing and warning communities.

We believe the media should be treated with courtesy and respect, and should be given reasonable assistance to inform the community of incidents, emergencies and disasters involving VICSES.

An on-call media duty officer is available through the VICSES Media Line to assist with news and information, and media releases are distributed to members of the news media via email or available for download.

VICSES also provides up-to-date information about the latest warnings and operations on Facebook and Twitter, and through the news feed on our website.
