The VicEmergency app is just one tool to assist you to access warnings and information about emergencies, however you should never rely on just one information channel. Emergency services use a range of other information channels including SKY TV, ABC local radio, some commercial and designated community radio stations, VicEmergency Hotline on 1800 226 226, VicEmergency website on www.emergency.vic.gov.au and VicEmergency Twitter and Facebook.

For iOS10, iOS9, iOS8 and iOS6:
1. Click on the Settings icon and then select Notifications. 
2. Scroll down, click the VicEmergency icon
3. Ensure 'Allow Notifications" or "Notification Centre" (iOS6) at top of the screen is set to On.

For iOS7: 
1. Open the device's Settings icon and then select 'Notification Center'.
2. Under 'Access on Lock Screen', check that 'Notifications View' is On (showing as green).
3. Scroll further down and ensure that VicEmergency is in the list under INCLUDE. Click it to open it.
4. At the top, set Alert Style as 'Banners' or Alerts'
5. Then ensure that everything in this section is turned On - ‘Badge App Icon’, ‘Sounds’, 'Show in Notification Center', 'Show on Lock Screen’, etc (all should be showing as green).

Customer Reviews

Can't find the thunderstorm asthma setting

Not in human health or weather ... have checked all other categories. Thunderstorm and sudden weather changes (hot & dry, to wet) have always been my biggest asthma trigger, but I can't find this widely promoted alert option.

Love it

The fact you can set watch zones, overlay rain radar, and filter is great! Streamflows next, guys. Particularly the Elster creek!

Useless

Spends most of its time loading. Heaven help us if there was a fire and you wanted info. Old CFA app was so much better never a connection issue. We can't all have the super latest phones if that's what it wants!!!
