In an emergency

In an emergency such as bushfires or severe weather events, Housing Choices South Australia will follow directions from the lead agency and we strongly advise all residents do the same.

During an emergency it is important to keep up to date with what is happening in your area. We urge all residents to prepare for emergencies by keeping a torch and battery powered radio in an easy to reach place in their home.

Your emergency broadcaster is ABC Local Radio. For your local station visit the ABC Website.
