We produce a wide variety of language resources for flood, storm and tsunami safety, communities at risk, school programs, home and business safety advice, interactive maps and plans.
Flood Data Access Portal
The NSW Flood Data Access Program is a joint partnership between the NSW State Emergency Service and the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage. The program aims to improve the sharing of key flood data within government and to other stakeholders, so that this information is more broadly available to be considered in decision making.

Deaf and hearing impaired
Staying connected and having insightful conversations in your community is a great way to plan and prepare for emergencies.
Attend local SES community events and chat to people who can help you and your family become more resilient in storm, flood and tsunami events. If you notice a local event in your area, come say hello - start a conversation that could help you and your community be better protected. Community Events
Tsunami Evacuation Map
The NSW State Emergency Service (NSW SES) has released new maps showing evacuation areas in the event of a land-threat tsunami.
While the likelihood of a land-threat tsunami on the east coast of Australia is low, the maps show the areas where residents and workers would have to move to higher ground in the event of a land-threat tsunami.
Marine-threat tsunamis occur once about every six years, but are usually only dangerous to swimmers and boaters because of the dangerous currents. There is no record of a land-threat tsunami in Australia since European settlement.
If there is a threat of land inundation from a tsunami, move to higher ground, at least ten meters above sea level or one kilometer away from the coast and rivers. Be sure to listen to your local radio station for information, warnings and advice.

Create an Emergency Plan
Make a Home Emergency Plan for you and your family.
A Home emergency plan allows you to know and plan what you will do in the event of a emergency. The online home emergency plan will show you key contacts for you area, steps to take during an emergency and also what you should take with you if evacuation or isolation is possible.
If you have a business you need to consider your risks during storm and flood emergencies.
It's time to make your Business Emergency Plan
We recommend that you and your family have an Emergency Kit made and ready to go, in case of evacuation, isolation or inundation.
