State Security and Terrorism

Release date: Tue 5 September 2017

Last updated: Tue 5 September 2017

For individuals and community

There are a number of things individuals and communities can do to prevent and prepare for emergencies. Your information could be the missing link that police need to prevent an incident from occurring. Preparedness is also vital - you may have to help yourself and others in the minutes directly prior to, during and after a terrorist attack.

Spend some time now to ensure you understand the Victorian Government counter terrorism arrangements and what you can do. All of us have a role to play.

  • General information - measures you can take to prepare and protect yourself and your family for an emergency
  • Emergency contacts - know what numbers to call and when you should call them
  • Community resources - The Australian Government is working with communities to build resilience to violent extremism
