The standards for the Metropolitan Fire and Emergency Services Board, the Country Fire Authority and VicSES have had significant revisions in 2009 and 2010 following the Black Saturday fires.
Telstra has been awarded the contract to build a national telephony-based emergency warning system in the event of a life-threatening natural disaster. Vodafone Hutchison Australia has now signed on to provide location-based emergency warnings during times of disaster or national emergency. The Victorian Government is overseeing the negotiations with Telstra, Vodafone and Optus on behalf of the nation. The developers of a radio-based emergency warning technology have secured backing from a Coalition Senator as they continue to lobby the Government to consider their technology against a SMS-based system supplied by Telstra.
Telstra’s submission to the Senate Inquiry on Emergency Warning systems subsequently called for additional strategies to preserve the supply of electricity in the event of disasters. In correspondence with the YellowBird developers sighted by ITnews, the Attorney-General rejected criticism of the Telstra's NEWS system. A WORLD-first emergency alert system to deliver text messages to mobile phones will be in place this year.

The locally-developed technology was overlooked by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) in 2009, members of which decided that telephony (rather than radio) was the appropriate technology to back for an emergency warning system. YellowBird developers estimated it would cost approximately $600,000 to test the efficacy and merits of the system in the field. Such integration would allow a functional emergency warning system to function without the need for intact power, mobile telephone and computing resource networks, a similar situation to that encountered in Japan after recent disasters there,” Robson said. These simulcast paging systems consist of sophisticated comprehensive message management and reporting, with a 24x7 Network Operations Centres and help desks for network users.
