Everyday Readiness

We have a vision of Victoria as a safe and resilient city that encourages everyday readiness in ways that support individual, family, neighbourhood, and city-wide resilience.

Some of the things you already do may also help you during an emergency, examples include keeping a flashlight in your car or shoes under your bed. These everyday habits are part of the muscle-building that leads to overall emergency preparedness. Everyday readiness is a state of mind, it isn’t a once a year thought to check your emergency kits.
