About Us

NSW Incident Alerts is a source of breaking news, updates and media of incidents occuring throughout NSW. We issue “alerts” about incidents may impact upon the travel or safety of your journey, you and your family, or your community. NSW Incident Alerts was formed in 2009, after the devastating Black Saturday bushfires, wanting to deliver information on incidents happening across the state in a central location.

Our key mission and goal at NSWIA is to keep the residents of New South Wales informed and aware of incidents and news in their locale that may affect them at home, work or in their community. As a result of having access to such information, they can be aware of the events occurring around them – providing them with the ability to be alert and prepared as to make choices and take the most appropriate action to keep themselves, their family, friends and community safe.

Our focus is on delivering the latest information to the community to provide them with the ability to be informed, aware and prepared.


Information is a great tool, and we aim to provide timely and accurate access to important information on incidents and events that may affect you in order to allow you to be aware of what is happening.


Awareness can be really important – being aware of what has happened, what is happening and what may come is vital in planning ahead to be prepared.


With the right information, and being aware of what is happening around you, you are then enabled to take on board all the resources available and if necessary, prepare yourself for what may come.


If you are involved in, or you witness an emergency or life threatening incident, you should immediately contact Triple Zero (000) and speak to the appropriate authority.

You should contact Triple Zero (000) if you answer yes to any of these questions:

    • Is someone seriously injured or in need of urgent medical help?
    • Is your life or property being threatened?
    • Have you just witnessed a serious accident or crime?
Triple Zero (000) is free to call from any land line or mobile in Australia

NSW Incident Alerts should not be your first point of contact for reporting a yet, unreported, emergency.

If you require information in a life threatening or emergency situation, we ask that you do not rely on our services, but visit the website or contact the relevant emergency service through appropriate means.

NSW Incident Alerts is not affiliated with any government agency.
