ACNCG Emergency Information

How will you know if there is an Emergency?

You may see it, hear it on the radio or you may get an emergency alert on your phone.

Emergency Alert is the national telephone warning system used by the emergency services to send emergency alert messages to landlines and mobile phones within a defined area about likely or actual emergencies. In the case of an emergency, you may receive a voice message on your landline or a text message on your mobile phone.

In an Altona Chemical Complex emergency you may

  • Hear a siren/alarm, loud explosion or emergency vehicles
  • Smell a strong chemical odour
  • See a large fire or smoke
  • Receive an Emergency Alert

Take Shelter Indoors

  • In this type of emergency the first thing you should do is go indoors
    • Close windows and shut curtains and blinds
  • Sheltering inside your home or a building in an emergency provides immediate protection
  • Monitor for emergency services advice via Radio 97.4, ABC Channel 2 or Emergency phone alerts
  • Cooperate fully with emergency service instructions and Emergency Alerts during the emergency.

Once the ‘all clear’ has been given, it is safe to move outdoors.

Refer to the Hobsons Bay City Council ARE YOU PREPARED FOR AN EMERGENCY Brochure for further information.
