RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a format for publishing frequently updated news and other content on the internet. RSS feeds provide updates to your computer at designated intervals when content is updated on a website.
We provides RSS feeds for Current Incidents, Warnings and Fire Danger Ratings. To receive RSS feeds you need a feed reader and must also subscribe to CFS feeds.
Once you have subscribed to a feed, information is sent to you after it is published on our website.
Important: Some RSS 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 Incidents and warnings regularly for the most up-to-date information.
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.
