Create transformative innovation

Putting public safety first

The devastating Black Saturday bushfires of 2009 led to the creation of a cloud-based nationwide Emergency Alert system to protect the safety of all Australians.

Putting public safety first

The Emergency Alert system, developed in partnership with Telstra, is used by all states and territories and can pinpoint the location of individuals to tailor messages to their current area.

  • More than 800,000 SMS and 1.5 million voice calls were sent via the system during Cyclone Yasi
  • The use of cloud technology enables authorities to reach people in time critical situations so they can make decisions about their safety.
