Emergency Alert is the national telephone warning system used by emergency management agencies. During emergencies such as fire, flood or extreme weather events, your landline or mobile telephone may be used to send you an emergency warning message.
An emergency alert is just one way to warn a community and will not be issued in all circumstances. You should be adequately prepared in the event of an emergency, continue to use a range of information sources and stay aware of local conditions. Do not wait to receive an alert before taking action.
The Emergency Alert service is available across all telephone networks. You do not need to register for Emergency Alert.
