With the nation in the grip of one of the worst bushfire seasons on record, our webinar will look at the vital role community radio plays in broadcasting emergency information.

This session will provide information to:

  • resources on the effective communication of public information and warnings
  • advice on how to engage with communities suffering from traumatic events
  • self-care tips for broadcasters.

Community stations who have been actively involved in broadcasting emergency information throughout this difficult time are invited to share your story.

Increasingly community broadcasters are taking on the responsibility of providing warnings and other information to their communities in times of emergency.


Throughout the recent bushfire crisis and in the aftermath, community radio has remained a vital source of local emergency information and space for community connection.
