More mobiles to receive emergency warnings

The Federal Government says it will fund the cost of extending a national emergency warning system to include mobile phones based on the location of the phone.

Currently the system sends warnings about emergencies like bushfires, floods and tsunamis to landline and mobile phones based on the billing address.

A study in Victoria has found the system should be able to include other mobile phones also in the affected area.

It is not yet known how much it will cost but the Federal Government says it will be offset with budget savings.
