EMERGENCY WARNINGS

For more information:www.emergencyalert.gov.au
Australia’s national telephone warning system – Emergency Alert – sends messages to mobile phones and landlines within a geographical area to advise of a disaster or emergency. It works across all carriers, you don’t need to be on a mobile plan to receive messages, and you don’t have to register for them.
