Emergency signs

Wednesday, 13 June 2018

We issued a media statement responding to an inquiry about emergency signs in the municipality.

Director City Services, Guy Wilson-Browne:

There are emergency signs located strategically on all of the VicRoads ‘declared main roads’ coming into our municipality from any direction, close to or on our border with neighbouring councils. 

They cite ABC 774 because it is Victoria’s primary emergency broadcasting partner, as arranged (about 10 years ago) through an MOU with Emergency Management Victoria.

We can also use other signs to advise people in emergencies, such as the digital sign on the Melbourne Road at North Geelong, VicRoads’ sign near Settlement Road, Belmont and a number of other mobile billboards and portable digital signs.
