Whilst Tsunami’s aren’t common, Sutherland Shire is in a coastal area so residents need to be ready for the possibility of a Tsunami.

During an Emergency

During an emergency, it is important to stay alert and stay calm. Ensure that you always follow the directions of NSW State Emergency Services and emergency services and adapt to a changing situation.

Make sure your emergency plan is up to date and you’re ready to evacuate if required.

Australia has an Emergency Alert Telephone Warning system. In an emergency you may get a call or text from this system, you do not need to sign up to get emergency alerts.

Council lifeguards may also provide support to direct people off the beach.
