What services are available for those who don’t speak English?

The Emergency Alert system only issues voice and text warning messages in English.

Members of the community are encouraged to discuss emergency preparedness with family, friends and neighbours who do not speak English, so they are able to act if they receive a warning message.

Emergency Alert print advertising which can be found here: www.emergencyalert.gov.au/languages has been translated in 30 languages as well as these Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).
