Echonetdaily has announced it will provide complimentary space for emergency community announcements for all four councils in our region and the State Emergency Service.

The initiative is the brainchild of Online Sales Manager Stuart Amos, who has been working with Echonetdaily’s technology provider to make it available.

The emergency announcement information would be included in the day’s issue of Echonetdaily, or within two hours notification (during business hours) after publication.

The alerts would also be emailed directly to Echonetdaily’s database, actively alerting readers.

Mr Amos said, ‘The content of the announcement can have hyperlinks to such things as maps and YouTube clips, or directly to a website for up-to-date information, enabling councils and the SES to access affected residents within a short period of time.’
