Back to question  ⤴

I can't find my property

Narrow your search by providing a street number range and try again. If your property has a lot number, rather than a street number - enter the suburb and street name and check the "No street number" check box. If you live in a unit or townhouse, use either a number range or check "No street number" to register your address.

When will I receive alerts?

Messages may be sent at any time of the day or night.

If you are overseas and your phone has international roaming, you will continue to receive alerts.  

Alerts are location and risk based. You should only receive an alert if the residential address you have registered may be impacted. 

Every reasonable effort will be made to provide alerts to registered users at the earliest opportunity. Telecommunications networks may experience delays in delivery.
