Emergency situations and preparation
Emergency situations can happen at any time and without warning. They are situations which pose immediate threat to an individual, group or surroundings.
Across Australia, dial 000 to be immediately connected with Ambulance, Fire or Police. Teach your kids when it is required and how to do it.
The organisations below all provide emergency services nationally, regardless of which community you’re in, and you can read more about the various services they offer, and find local services from the state lists.
Over time, we will be adding articles, lists and other resources here from various emergency services to enable people to be as prepared as possible for any emergency situation. Please subscribe to our e-News below to stay up to date.
