Communication in an emergency

Your home phone, computer or other electronic devices connected to the NBN will not work if there is a power failure during an emergency.

This means you may not be able to call 000 to access emergency services from your home phone or receive an emergency alert or warning message.

When planning for emergencies, think about what you will do and what your options may be to get help if you need it.

Take the following actions:

  • Make sure your mobile phone is fully charged, and have a charged power pack as a back-up.
  • Have a number of options to keep informed during emergencies, such as listening to local ABC Radio.
  • Include a battery powered radio in your emergency kit.
  • Connect with your neighbours before, during and after an event; you may need to rely on each other for help.
  • Purchase basic fuel, food and water supplies as banking and electronic purchasing services may not be available.
  • Bookmark the Emergency WA website for quick access to the page on your smartphone www.emergency.wa.gov.au.
  • Ensure that your plan is up to date. Visit firechat.wa.gov.au and use the Bushfire Preparation Toolkit to prepare your property and create a plan that outlines what you will do if a bushfire occur
