Workshops

Learn How To Be "Emergency Prepared"

Each year, Emergency Management Victoria offers free workshops to educate individuals and families on how to prepare for emergencies such as a power outage, winter storm, earthquake or tsunami. Depending on the type of emergency, you and your family should be able to cope up to seven days without outside assistance.

Register for an Emergency Preparedness Workshop 

Learn more about the hazards that can affect Victoria, what to include in your home and vehicle emergency kits, what you can do to protect your home from an earthquake, and how to reunite with your loved ones after a disaster by attending a free, two-hour Emergency Preparedness Workshop.
