Community Safety

The State Emergency Service (SES) is the lead response agency for floods, storms and tsunami across NSW. Under the SES Act of 1989, the SES has a responsibility to ensure that communities throughout the state are adequately prepared to reduce the impact of these events.

Assisting communities prepare for these events can reduce the damage, loss and costs associated with floods, storms and tsunami. The protection of life is the priority for the SES in these events.

These pages below can assist you in becoming better prepared for floods, storms and tsunami as well as give you information on what to do just before, during and after these events. Click on the links, to find out more about NSW SES Community Safety Programs.
