Emergency updates

It’s important to stay up-to-date with the latest and most accurate cyclone information in an emergency.   

Visit Department of Fire and Emergency Services WA (DFES WA) or Emergency WA websites and listen to ABC local radio (702AM). The City will follow advice from DFES to guide its decisions and communications. 

Do not rely on local lighting systems or flags to advise you of the current alert – they are being phased out of service.
