Emergency Alert

Emergency Alert is the national telephone warning system which is used by South Australian Emergency Services (SA Police, CFS, SES and MFS).

The system sends voice messages to landlines and text messages to mobile phones within a defined area, about likely or actual emergencies such as fire, flood, or extreme weather events.
