Unfortunately there is not enough market demand to develop or support the VicEmergency app on Windows Phones or BlackBerry devices.
The VicEmergency website (designed for mobile devices) allows users to create a profile, watch zones and even register for warnings to be delivered via email.
You can add this website as a quick link icon on your Windows Phone. For specific instructions, scroll down to the 'Windows 8, 8.1, RT' section: www.howtogeek.com/196087/how-to-add-websites-to-the-home-screen-on-any-smartphone-or-tablet/
There is also a fast-loading text version of the website which gives you a simple list of warnings and incidents.
You’ll also find warnings and emergency information in a variety of place:
- The VicEmergency website
- VicEmergency on Facebook and Twitter
- VicEmergency Hotline on 1800 226 226
- ABC Local Radio, commercial and designated community radio stations
- Sky News television
For a full list of emergency broadcasters, please visit the Emergency Management Victoria website.
Microsoft will stop issuing security updates to smartphones running Windows 10 Mobile on December 10, 2019, and it officially recommends you switch to Android or iOS devices by that time. For this reason, development of an app for the Universal Windows Platform is not planned.
