We Need YOUR Help!

Beta Testers Wanted CFA Bushfire Warnings & NSW Police Alerts

EWN.com.au is Australia's first national early warning system. We've been providing early warnings to the Australian public since 2007.

EWN is always improving! We're testing new features and are looking for members of the public to help us.

 

Now we need your help in fine tuning our bushfire warnings. We are in the process of adding CFA Bushfire Warnings and NSW Police Alerts to EWN. We will be adding other states soon after.

We are working hard on this now and want to get it right the first time. These alerts could help save lives in a fire or police emergency.

EWN are asking for your assistance in testing our bushfire alerts system. We need your valuable input and comments so we know we are getting things right.
