Emergency & Fire

Emergencies can happen at any time and are usually unexpected.  Ararat Rural City is exposed to a variety of natural hazards, including floods, fires and storms.

Council and emergency services are here to help you in the event of an emergency, but there are things you can do to ensure the safety of your family, home or business.

It is important to put in your own family plan and get involved in a community plan to help prepare for any emergency event.
