The ABC upgrades emergency services

Friday 30 October, 2020

The ABC has announced upgrades to its emergency services in preparation for this year’s emergency summer season.

The ABC’s Managing Director David Anderson has launched the broadcaster’s new Emergency website which aggregates information from key national and state emergency services.

The website allows users to search for nearby incidents; check on emergency events in other locations around the country; and connects the user with their nearest local ABC Radio station.

Mr Anderson said last summer’s horrific bushfire season showed that Australians turned to the ABC in record numbers to stay informed and to keep safe.

“The ABC was named the nation’s most trusted source of emergency information* and as we move towards summer we have directed every available resource to our emergency services. We understand the advice that cyclones and floods may be greater risks than fires this summer and we have been working with emergency agencies to give Australians the best information possible.”

Mr Anderson was speaking at a special broadcast from Batemans Bay on the NSW South Coast to mark the recommissioning of the region’s ABC local radio transmission mast, which was burnt out on 31 December 2019.

The new mast at Mt Wandera, near Mogo, was switched on in recent days and provides stronger ABC Television and Radio coverage to the greater Batemans Bay region.
