Noosa ALERT uses text messages (SMS) and email to send out information about local disasters, severe weather and emergency events. This is a free, opt-in service so you will need to register to receive Noosa ALERT warnings.

The alerts are official communication from the Noosa Local Disaster Management Group which manages the community response to disasters.
