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.

The SES has dedicated websites that 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.
