It might be one day, one week, or one month away. But a storm will come. The best thing you can do to protect yourself and your property is to prepare for the worst.

Here are some easy tips to increase the safety of your property before a storm hits:

  • Keep trees and branches away from your home.

  • Park your car undercover.

  • Keep gutters, downpipes and drains clean.

  • Secure outdoor furniture and trampolines.

  • Prepare an emergency kit with essential items.

What to do during a storm

  • Stay indoors and away from windows.

  • Look out for and avoid falling or damaged trees, damaged roads and debris, and fallen powerlines.

  • Stay informed: Monitor weather warning and forecasts via the Bureau of Meteorology website or app, warnings through the VicEmergency website, app or hotline (1800 226 226), or tune in to emergency broadcasters.

  • Remember: If you need storm emergency assistance, call VICSES on 132 500.
