Incident alert settings for new watch zones include bushfire, grass fire, other fire, flood, damaging winds, storm, human health, earthquake, landslide, tsunami, beach closure, and shark sighting by default.
For all other incidents you will need to choose which ones you are alerted to. You can do this by following these steps:
- Select your watch zone
- Select "Edit" in top-right-hand corner
- Scroll down to the "Incidents" section and make sure emergencies you want to be notified for are selected (it will be green next to it if the notification for it is on)
- Select “Save"
Please also make sure that on your home page next to your watch zone you have “Alerts On” - this should be green.
The "Filter" section will only turn off and on incidents that you are viewing, it won't affect your notifications.
