DFES Emergency Alerts

Looking for live DFES feed if possible? Mainly for emergencies for bus fires and cyclone evacuation orders if possible. I know that DFES has the data on so would think that this data should be accessible to the public?

There are Rss feeds available from Emergency WA - Home - Emergency WA Warnings & Incidents. Is this what your looking for?

Hi @radiomedia there is a Restricted DFES Service where this data is available as I had to request it while the Woorooloo fires were on. I would reach out to DFES and ask for access to the data.

The layers are Active EmergencyWA Incident Areas (DFES-041) and Active EmergencyWA Warning Areas (DFES-042)

I do not know why this data feed is not PUBLIC as it should be and is freely available on the website Home - Emergency WA Warnings & Incidents


@kmiddleton The RSS feeds are not pretty and not easy to quickly hook into.

We will request access.
@James be interested in knowing how you use it at the City of Swan and your thoughts on the data?

I have not had a close look at the RSS feed, but I have a gut feeling it does not have the polygon mapping data we require for evacuations and warnings - I could be wrong and it’s easier to work with GEOjson with our system.

DFES are working on a public Emergency WA data service. They are looking to make it available around December so if you drop an email they can provide an update on progress. You might also like to provide a bit of info on your requirements :slight_smile:
