Following the Bureau of Meteorology’s recent announcement to expect La Niña weather patterns over the coming months, Kingston Council is contacting local community groups to remind them to be prepared, just in case.

Being prepared can help reduce the effects of flooding and reduce recovery costs.
The Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES) has some fantastic tools to help you be better prepared for all kinds of emergency events, including local area flood guides and a checklist to build an Emergency Kit. The Australian Red Cross provides templates and apps to make it easy for you to prepare for all kinds of emergencies. 

Sign up to receive alerts and warnings from the VicEmergency app or website.  Please also take note of the contact numbers to call if a flood event occurs: In a life-threatening emergency, call ‘000’; you can reach the SES Flood Storm Emergency line on 132 500. And the Vic Emergency Hotline is 1800 226 226.
 

Applications are closing soon! Submit your project by at 5pm on Monday 17 January 2022.
Grant conditions and further information can be found on the information sheet and application form. For more information please contact elisabetta.robecchi@kingston.vic.gov.au
