Flood alerts

Get flood alerts via text message

We send out mobile phone SMS alerts during times of flood. We begin the SMS alerts when we receive official word that Lismore will reach the minor flood level of 4.2 metres. We send an alert every 6-8 hours after that or when authorities alert us that river heights are rising. We continue to send alerts until the flood reaches its peak.

Phone us on 1300 87 83 87 and register your phone number or complete the Flood Alert SMS Registration.
