Why didn't I get the landline message?

You may not have received the recorded voice message on your landline telephone for a number of reasons including:

  • your landline telephone was engaged
  • you didn’t hear/answer the telephone call
  • there was a power outage and you have a cordless landline telephone
  • the landline telephone was outside the warning area
  • you do not have a standard landline telephone
  • your telephone is not registered to the correct service address
