In the event of a disaster or severe events there are several critical smartphone apps that can provide critical information to help you make informed decisions. We urge you to install these – they are available for iPhones and Android phones. Search for them on your smartphone – icons on the image at left.
Hazards Near Me – Hazards Near Me is an update to Fires Near Me. You can set Watch Zones to be notified of potential Hazards (Fire, Flood etc) near you and the status of the Hazards
Emergency + – Emergency + (or Emergency Plus) uses your smartphone GPS and location services to show where you are. If you need to contact emergency services (and you can from within the App) you can provide you location with accuracy using the co-ordiantes, address or What Three Words.
Live Traffic– Live traffic shows incidents from the Transport for NSW incident management system. If you need to evacuate, this is vital information in near-time to ensure your route is clear.
