The NSW State Emergency Service, South Eastern Zone, provides an automated Flood Bulletin distribution system to improve notification of flood impacts and consequences to the public.
Bulletins are automatically sent by SMS, fax or email whenever a Flood Bulletin is issued or updated for the nominated river system. Unfortunately, the Picton CBD is a designated flash flooding environment so the SES can’t issue detailed Flood Bulletins for this area because the warning time is so short. We do share Bureau of Meteorology flash flood warnings, and issue community newsletters and Evacuation Warnings and Orders for the area. We would like to use our distribution system to issue these to people who live in the Picton CBD. This service is offered free of charge to private residents, commercial and industrial businesses, rural and agricultural landholders. When you register, you nominate your preferred distribution method. The distribution database is managed by the NSW SES South Eastern Zone. Any information collected by us is only used for the distribution of official information and will not be given to any third party. Users are responsible to advise us should their nominated contact details change and may opt out at any time. Users need to be aware that they we will endeavour to send all official communications issued during a severe weather event for the Picton CBD, and these may be sent at odd hours of the day and night. Should you require any additional information about this service, please don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected]
