Emergency Preparedness

Tsunami Preparedness Week, April 14-20, 2024

Most people in Victoria are safe from tsunami risks. This year, for Tsunami Preparedness Week, get to know the hazard and safe zones. If you live, work or play in a tsunami hazard zone, practice your route to the safe zone on foot or by bike. During a real tsunami event, we need to keep roads clear for first responders.
