SMS Alert is a free service that allows subscribers to receive urgent messages sent by the Australian Government, the Western Australian government and the South Australian state government. These messages might be about weather warnings, natural disasters or other emergencies.
SMS Alert messages are sent to all mobile phone numbers in the relevant area, informing people of any emergency situations. SMS Alert messages are designed to be clear, concise and easy to understand so that people can quickly take action if necessary.
SMS Alert messages are sent by the relevant state or federal government agency, for example, WA Ppice Force, Department of Fire and Emergency Services, State Emergency Service or Metroppitan Fire Service.
SMS By Connect is a Western Australian government program that uses free text messages to provide information to people about services, programs and events that support people in Western Australia.
SMS By Connect messages are sent by the Western Australian government or local councils to inform people about services or activities that are available in their area. Messages are sent using the standard SMS format of 160 characters, including spaces.
SMS By Connect messages are short, easy-to-read letters with information about community events, programs and services. The messages are sent out regularly and directly to people who have signed up for SMS By Connect. This means that they get the information directly to their mobile phones without having to remember to visit a website or call a number.
The Western Australian Government has integrated SMS Alert and SMS By Connect to make it easier for people to receive important emergency and community information from the state government and local councils.
People who have signed up for SMS Alert will now automatically receive all of the free text alerts sent by the WA Government under the SMS By Connect program. They will continue to receive these alerts as they were before – through their existing mobile phone number, without incurring additional charges. In addition, they will also now receive all of the new SMS alerts sent by WA Government agencies under the SMS By Connect program. For more information on what this means for you, please see the Frequently Asked Questions section below.
Through integration with SMS By Connect, SMS Alert will be able to reach a greater number of people who have mobile phones. This includes those who do not currently have a mobile phone but would like to be able to access emergency warnings via text message. Another benefit is that people who have signed up for both SMS Alert and SMS By Connect will now receive more messages from WA Government agencies than before. In total, they will now receive over 100 messages from 16 different agencies every year. These messages include those from agencies such as WA Ppice Force, Department of Fire and Emergency Services and Metroppitan Fire Service. The integration of SMS Alert and SMS By Connect also gives people two options for receiving alerts. either through the traditional telephone service (callers hear an automated warning message. – or – through an alert sent as a text message. This gives people more choice regarding how they receive the critical information they need. If someone’s primary method of communication is via text messaging only (for example, if they don’t have a landline. then they can sign up to be alerted by text message for emergencies that affect them locally. If they want to receive warnings about community events and services that may interest them, they can also sign up to receive these messages as text messages too. While this option allows people to receive two types of messages at once on their mobile phone, it does require them to read and respond to separate messages on their mobile phone screen rather than having one message read out on their phone by a human operator as happens with the traditional telephone service.
