Make Emergency Preparedness Your New Year's Resolution - Attend a Free Workshop

Are you and your family prepared for an emergency such as a power outage, winter storm, earthquake or tsunami? Your family needs to have enough food, water and supplies to cope for at least seven days without outside assistance, depending on the emergency.

Make emergency preparedness your family’s New Year’s Resolution and attend a free workshop offered by Emergency Management Victoria. Learn about the hazards that can affect Victoria, what to include in your emergency kits, what you can do to protect your home from an earthquake, and how to reunite with your loved ones after a disaster.
