Preparation



Quick guide for householders.
  • Make an emergency kit.
  • Do a first aid course.
  • Write a household flood plan.
  • Check your insurance.
  • Identify your nearest flood safe location.


  • Find out if you live or work in or near a flood-prone area. Your
council or local SES unit can help you. There should be a
copy of your local flood plan in the council library. Remember,
you can still be affected by floods even if your property is not
inundated by floodwater. You may become isolated or access
to areas may be cut.
