Be Storm Ready is a message supported by the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) and the Shire of Dumbleyung to increase the resilience to storm risk in our community because, during a storm, emergency services may not be available to protect every home. This means residents and homeowners need to be responsible for their own safety.
