Emergency Alert is the national telephone warning system.
It is one of many ways emergency services such as police, fire and emergency services, can warn a community of a likely or actual emergency.
Emergency Alert is not used in all circumstances. Whether emergency services decide to issue telephone warnings through Emergency Alert will depend on the nature of the incident.
The warning system sends voice messages to landline telephones and text messages to mobile telephones within a specific area defined by the emergency service organisation issuing the warning message, about likely or actual emergencies such as fire, flood, or extreme weather events.
You should not wait to receive a warning message before you act.
