Victoria's Supplementary Alerting Service app getting closer

Work is proceeding on Victoria’s new Supplementary Alerting Service (SAS) app, which will supplement the Emergency Alerting System (EAS) used by emergency services personnel.

The SAS will improve communications during emergency responses and provide improved functionality.

Emergency Management Victoria has been working with Ambulance Victoria, ESTA, CFA and VICSES on the development of the app.

Following the award of the tender to EY in June 2019, a series of workshops have brought agencies, EAS specialists and end users together to work on the app.

The R&D segments of the project were completed in August, with development of prototypes now underway.

Use of the app will be voluntary. It is being funded by the Victorian Government and will be provided to staff and volunteers at no cost.
