A single all-emergencies website for Victorians.
VicEmergency is Victoria's primary website for emergency warnings for fire and flood and provides a single source of information and advice to help people prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies.
The Victorian Bushfire Information Line (VBIL) provides information during and after major bushfire incidents. It also offers information to help householders, landowners and small businesses reduce bushfire risk. In a situation where you can see or smell smoke, VBIL can advise whether or not a planned burn is in progress.
Flood & Storms
Victoria State Emergency Service (SES) is the control agency for flood, storm, tsunami and earthquake in Victoria, managing responses to these emergencies and helping communities to prepare through planning and education.
