Don’t wait until it’s too late -
get ready now

You’ll see them every summer; people who have left it too late to get ready and are relying on the SES for help. By preparing ourselves better before the storm and cyclone season hits, we can help take the strain off the SES and let them focus on those who need help the most.

There’s lots of ways you can Get Ready, but the easiest way is to sign up to One Step at a Time - a weekly personalised online program that gives you a simple task to tick off every week. In 51 weeks, you’ll be ready for anything. You can register here.
