State Government Emergency Alert system

The State Government introduced the Emergency Alert system as another means of informing residents/visitors etc about an emergency.


Know where to get information and what the warnings mean

You can also download their app to keep up-to-date and receive alerts.


The warning system, when used, sends voice messages to landline telephones and text messages to mobile phones within a specific area determined by the emergency service issuing the warning message.

You should not wait to receive a warning message before you act.

This system is not used in all circumstances, and as such you should use a range of information sources and check them regularly, that is: 774ABC, local radio, websites, etc.
