Prevention and preparedness

Before, during and after an event

When you hear a warning issued please assist other people by passing the information onto neighbours and visitors who may not have heard it or may not have understood the meaning.

Please note: State Emergency Services (volunteers) are only required to attend to emergency situations (eg trees on houses or roof damage).

The community is required to attend to and arrange private damage clean-up.

Requests for assistance will be prioritised and response times will be affected during major events. Your patience is appreciated.

Remember, SES personnel are volunteers who leave their homes and family to attend call-outs. The SES are not first responders, such as police, fire or ambulance.
