What are Urgent Alerts?
Urgent Alerts are an easy way to hear about and communicate urgent crime and safety situations in your neighbourhood. These special messages are sent to Neighbourly members instantly via email as well as posted on the website.
Urgent Alerts are free to send or receive and are intended for rare cases where crime and/or safety is a concern and the community needs to be notified quickly.
Examples of Urgent Alerts include extreme weather warnings, natural disasters, road closures, missing people or a dangerous situation within your community.
Receiving Urgent Alerts
You can receive Urgent Alerts from your neighbours via email and/or mobile phone text message. To start receiving Urgent Alerts by text message, or to stop receiving them, simply edit your Email Settings or your Mobile Settings.
Sending Urgent Alerts
Urgent Alerts are designed to reach your fellow neighbours immediately via text message and email. SMS Urgent Alerts are ideal for local, time-sensitive emergencies that affect a single suburb (no more than 10,000 members).
While this is a free service, it is very important that all members respect this tool as it is reserved for times when information needs to be delivered in a time-sensitive manner. The Neighbourly team reserves the right not to send any urgent alert we deem inappropriate.
