Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Simon Corbell, will today launch the annual ACT State Emergency Service StormSafe campaign at Floriade.
The StormSafe campaign reminds all ACT residents to be storm safe during the upcoming storm period.
“With the storm season now here till March next year, it is important for all of us to prepare to minimise damage and risk at our homes,” Mr Corbell said.
“Once again this season, the ACTSES has partnered with the NRMA and is reminding the ACT community that ‘doing a little could save the lot’.
