The Early Warning Network
The Early Warning Network (EWN) provides location based emergency alerts for severe thunderstorms, hail, bushfires, floods, tropical cyclones, tsunami, heavy rainfall, damaging winds and other threats. EWN monitors and tracks potentially dangerous weather systems and uses the network to alert people directly in the path of an event. More information can be found in the weather alerts FAQ and the support pages.

EWN manages custom alerting solutions such as flash flood alerts - where warnings are delivered to specific communities or locations vulnerable to flash or creek flooding. These can be triggered by remote sensors. Find out more from the Commercial Services links.
The Early Warning Network is a multi-channel emergency early warning system that provides the ability to instantly and simultaneously broadcast alerts and notifications to individuals or groups, over multiple communication mediums. The system is geographically aware: members receive alerts based on their registered address or mobile location via one of the Apps. This means those people needing the information, get it. Messages can be sent sensitive to physical locations (name, street, post code, town or map location) or any other grouping type EWN or an emergency authority designates.
Alerts are sent to:
- EWN Website
