STORM SAFE   

Storms can happen anywhere, at any time of year and are often accompanied by strong winds, large hailstones and lightning. Storms cost Victorians an average of $28 million each year, and can cause significant damage to homes, businesses and community infrastructure

The Victoria State Emergency Service (SES) are the agency responsible for planning for storms and floods, and for managing the response when they occur. 

The SES have put together some important information that can help you learn more about what you can do to prepare your home for storms.


For more information on how you can become Storm Safe visit the VicSES website at;
