Are you set up to receive up to date warnings and incident information this summer?

The VicEmergency app is the official Victorian Government app for access to community information and warnings for all types of emergencies in Victoria which we recommend all Wollert residents should install on their smart phones or tablets.

The VicEmergency app brings together emergency information and warnings from agencies including:

  • Country Fire Authority

  • Department of Economic Development and Transport and Resources

  • Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning

  • Department of Health and Human Services

  • Life Saving Victoria

  • Metropolitan Fire Brigade

  • Victoria State Emergency Service

The app is managed by Emergency Management Victoria and supported by the Department of Justice and Regulation. Since the app was launched, it has undergone a number of enhancements:

  • VicEmergency no longer uses Google Maps as its mapping provider, but instead uses Spatial Vision VicMaps Books. VicMap is designed to ensure that emergency services have access to the latest, authoritative topographic mapping across Victoria.

  • Fire Danger Ratings now also display for both current location and watch zones.

  • Other enhancements to the app include improved performance and faster connectivity, especially for those in remote and low-coverage areas, as well as reduced data download requirements.

Make sure you have the Vic Emergency app installed on your smart phones and tablets so you and your family can stay safe this summer.
