Bush fire warnings fail test

Posted by: 6PR | 26 February, 2013 - 5:23 PM
Glen Forrest residents are angry they didn't receive an SMS about yesterday's bush fire.

Liram was at work when a bush fire started burning near his house in Glen Forrest. He didn’t receive an SMS from DFES telling him about the fire. Howard Sattler spoke with Liram, Glen Forrest resident Tom and Department of Fire and Emergency Services' Tim McGrade.

Blog comments Your Say

  • The man Refered to his mate getting an alert message when they had a chemical fire that is different to a bush fire as it has fumes which are dangous and effects a much bigger area.

    As far as getting a text you cannot blame dfes as I am in a fire brigade down south and recieve text when I get a call out but sometimes we dont get them for 2 days Blame telstra not dfes .
    And lastly the reason they are keeping it to local areas it is understandable unfortually it is to protect people they cannot have people comming back to there homes and rushing around as this puts them at risk as well as the emergancy workers .Nothing worse than trying to watch ya own back as well as some stressed out person wanting to get to there home .

  • I'm the volunteer firefighter that Lirim spoke to. My wife was at home and received the message on our home phone but not on her mobile. The fire was about 150 metres from our home. I was at the fire (you can't get closer than that!)and there was no message to my mobile either. Our home is the billing adress for all phones. We get a good mobile reception signal.
