Broadcasters

The Victorian Government has formal arrangements for the broadcast of emergency warnings and information to the community.

During emergencies, Victoria's emergency broadcasters will broadcast information, including updates and community alerts, which will help the public to make decisions based on the advice of the emergency services.

If necessary, emergency warnings will interrupt normal programming on the radio and television station.

The only two ‘approved' emergency broadcast ABC stations that cover all of Mitchell shire are: 774 AM (774 Melbourne)and 621 AM (Radio National)
