Australian Warning System

Western Australia is joining with other states and territories to deliver nationally consistent emergency information through the implementation of the Australian Warning System (AWS).

The AWS is an easy-to-understand warning system to help you stay safe during an emergency, no matter where in the country you are. This year you’ll notice changes to the bushfire warning colours, as well as new nationally consistent hazard icons on Emergency WA. Over time you’ll see more changes to emergency information across all natural hazards as we continue to achieve national consistency.

Know the new warning system and how to stay safe during an emergency.
