The ACT State Emergency Service (ACTSES) is a volunteer emergency service organisation which gives immediate assistance to the community during emergencies and disasters 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The main function of the ACTSES is to undertake planning and response operations for storms and floods.
Assisting families and households to be prepared for storms can reduce the loss, damages and costs associated with them. When households and families respond better to storms by being prepared, their recovery can be quicker and their resilience to future storms will be greater.
The ACT can experience major storms which can result in significant damage and disruption to the community.
It is important to be prepared now so that you will know what to do when there is a storm.
Making an emergency plan and putting together an emergency kit can help your home and family prepare for, respond to and recover from storms.
