RSS feeds

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a format for publishing frequently updated news and other content on the internet. RSS feeds provide free updates to your computer at designated intervals when content is updated on a website.

At present, the CFS provides RSS feeds for Current Incidents and Warnings.

To receive CFS RSS feeds you need a feed reader and must also subscribe to CFS feeds.

Select the CFS RSS feeds of your choice above. Once you have successfully subscribed to a feed, information is sent to you after it is published on the website.

Important Note: Some third party readers will not refresh as frequently as is required for live updates. It is recommended that if your reader cannot be set to update at least every 5 minutes that you bookmark and check Warnings and Incidents regularly for the most up to date information.

Warning Details transmitted using the Common Alerting Protocol

The Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) is a standardised system that allows consistent and easy to understand emergency messages to be broadcast across a variety of communication systems. CAP can be used to alert and inform emergency response agencies, media and the public. CAP ensures that messages remain consistent and clearly indicate to the recipient the severity of the threat and best response.

The Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) file below provided by the SA Country Fire Service is an XML-based data format for exchanging public warnings and emergency information between alerting and warning systems.
