EWN monitors severe weather and natural hazard events across Australia 24/7. Regional Alerts allows users to receive alerts for either one or multiple regions across Australia, perfect for users who need to understand what's going on over a wide area.
Data is sourced from the Bureau of Meteorology, Australian Tsunami Warning Centre and Fire agencies from each state and territory.
EWN’s Alerting team also monitor high resolution telemetry and will provide an “Advice Alert” for potential severe events when an official warning has not been issued.
With Regional Alerts, you choose which warnings you would like to receive so if Bushfires are your only concern, we will only send alerts should a bushfire warning be issued. Warning choice options include:
- Severe Thunderstorm warnings
- Tsunami warnings
- Severe Weather warnings
- Fire weather warnings
- Flood Watches
- Tropical Cyclone watches and warnings
- Bushfire watch & act
- Bushfire Emergency warning
Rather than having to waste time on sourcing and then validating if the alert applies to you, we do all the hard work for you only sending the alert when an area is affected. We also remove all the re-issued warnings from being sent to you, removing the confusion with it and making the alert process clear and easy. Save time and money on your own staff monitoring weather and hazard events and let us do all the work. Also includes a (optional) national threat map.
The service operates 24/7, 365 days per year with alerts sent via SMS, email and landline call.
