Emergency broadcasters

Emergency broadcasters

The Victorian government has formal arrangements with the following media outlets to broadcast emergency warnings and information to the community.

During emergencies, the stations listed below and SKY NEWS television (including website) will broadcast information which will help you make decisions based on the advice of emergency services.

If necessary, emergency warnings will interrupt normal programming on the radio or television station.

It is important to understand that this is a guide only – radio reception varies and may also depend on local weather and geographical conditions. In addition, always use more than one source of data to make sure you have the most accurate and up-to-date information possible.
