Alert SA – Public Information and Warnings in Emergencies 

The South Australian Fire and Emergency Services Commission (SAFECOM) aims to enhance the current Alert SA application to provide a “multi-hazard” public information and warnings solution.

The Alert SA app, managed by SAFECOM, serves as a state-owned platform to deliver emergency warnings and information to the South Australian community. Since its launch in December 2019, the app has garnered significant popularity, with over 325,000 downloads, processing of over 10,000 incidents, and delivering over 71 million notifications.

SAFECOM is now gearing up to further enhance the app’s capabilities by developing a comprehensive “multi-hazard” public information and warning solution. As part of this enhancement, SAFECOM recognises the importance of gathering feedback from the community regarding their preferences for receiving and acting on emergency information and their perspectives on crucial elements to include in a multi-hazard app.

Your feedback is sought to gain a deeper understanding of the needs and expectations of our community when it comes to receiving information about current and imminent emergencies.
