Floods

Local Land Services offers flood emergency advice and support where possible.

The best way to manage the impacts of floods is to be prepared. It’s essential for you to be aware of your local area and local conditions so you can properly protect yourself, your family, your pets and livestock, and your property against the risk of floods.

We recommend you plan well in advance and understand the risks and hazards surrounding your home and land.

To help you prepare for floods, our specialist emergency management staff have developed a Farm flood guide.

Our staff are trained to oversee planning and lead relief programs for agriculture and animals impacted during flood emergencies.

To find out more, contact your Local Land Services office or call 1300 795 299.

Emergency flood plan and other resources

It’s very hard to respond to a flood efficiently without the proper preparation and planning, as is the case with most natural disasters.

The NSW State Emergency Service (SES) has created an emergency floodsafe plan for your household or business. They also provide resources to help you prepare an Animal Emergency Plan for your livestock and other animals.

Visit NSW SES website for current storm and flood advice for your area.

The NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment also provides information on surface and groundwater management as well as real-time water information and data.
