Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Simon Corbell, recently launched a new website and social media accounts for the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Emergency Services Agency as a new way for citizens to access information during emergencies.

The new ESA website is hosted on robust architecture in both Canberra and Sydney to maximise the availability of the website in high demand emergency situations which was a key learning out of several recent major emergencies in Australia including the Queensland Floods and Victorian Bushfires.

“The new ACT Emergency Services Agency website has been created to provide access to emergency information, updates and warnings as a key priority. Canberrans will now be able to easily find out information about these fires and other emergency incidents through the new ESA website and social media accounts in addition to local media outlets,” Corbell said in an official statement.

The new ESA website is hosted on robust architecture in both Canberra and Sydney to maximise the availability of the website in high demand emergency situations which was a key learning out of several recent major emergencies in Australia.

ESA News Alerts are published 24 hours a day and News Alerts will also be published simultaneously on the ESA Twitter and Facebook accounts. Citizens can also subscribe to this information directly to their own computer or hand-held device via an RSS feed of ESA News Alerts and a GeoRSS feed of the ESA Current Incidents.
