Flood Aware. Be Prepared.

News Update 27 July 2021

The 'Flood Aware. Be Prepared’ campaign is based on flood modelling and a flood risk assessment and vulnerability study undertaken for the Swan and Helena Rivers, commissioned by the Eastern Metropolitan Regional Council (EMRC), with involvement from State Government agencies and five local governments including the City of South Perth.

The campaign aims to raise awareness of the flood risks associated with the Swan and Helena Rivers in the communities within Perth's Eastern Region in conjunction with the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) and the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER).

It is crucial that the community understands the existing risks, makes informed decisions and is aware of and prepared for potential flood behaviour for a range of events including those that are considered rare.
