Take care after an emergency, as dangerous conditions may still exist.

It may not be safe for you to immediately return to your home or workplace.

  • Call 132 500 for emergency assistance from VICSES in the event of flooding, storms, landslides, earthquakes and tsunamis.

  • Call Triple Zero (000) in life threatening emergencies.

  • If you experience damage to your property contact your insurer as soon as possible to lodge a claim.

  • Visit your insurer’s website or the Insurance Council of Australia Disasters website for more information.

For recovery information, contact your local council, go to the VicEmergency Relief and Recovery page or call the VicEmergency Hotline (1800 226 226).
