Bush Fire Emergency
During an emergency situation such as a large bush fire it is vital that the correct information is passed onto those who need it. There are all sorts of comments and information, some of it false and alarmist that is passed via social media sites. There are a number of ways the necessary and correct information can be passed to residents depending on the severity of the incident and who is in charge of the incident (Incident Controller).
They are as follows:
1 SMS messaging - which is run by the Shire
2 Public Notice Boards - run by the Shire and located at the Shire office entry
3 The Shire Facebook page
4 Shire web site - www.boddington.wa.gov.au
5 DFES web site - www.dfes.wa.gov.au
6 DFES Information line - 13 DFES - 13 3337
7 DFES twitter feed - www.twitter.com/dfes_wa
8 Local ABC radio
9 Telephone warning system - Initiated only by the Incident Controller through DFES. Telephone warning system is where all phones in a designated area are sent a
message or a recorded voice message advising of imminent danger. As stated, it is authorised by incident controller only and set in motion by DFES
