Do you know what to do in an emergency?

A new video series produced by the City of Whittlesea aims to help residents understand and prepare for emergencies.

The short, animated videos which are also available captioned in nine different languages, provide tips to help keep people safe before, during and after emergencies including fire, flood and storms.

CEO Craig Lloyd said it was important to prepare for emergencies and know what to do if an emergency occurred.

“Unfortunately, none of us are exempt from the possibility of an emergency and we know from experience much of our municipality is at risk from grass fires or bushfires,” Lloyd said.

“The videos we have produced and put on our website will help you to prepare for all types of emergencies.”

The four short two-minute videos include:

  • Understanding your emergency risks, based on where you live
  • Technology that can help you before, during and after an emergency
  • How to prepare for housefires, bushfires and grassfires
  • How to prepare for storms and floods.

The videos are also available captioned in Arabic, Chinese, Farsi, Greek, Italian, Macedonian, Punjabi, Turkish and Vietnamese.
