What are the sections in the community notification workflow?

To ensure that there is consistency across all hazards notifications templates are broken up into standard sections. 

The structure of Warnings templates is: 

  • Critical details – This section provides critical details including the notification level, area the notification is issued for, hazard type, hazard location (and if relevant direction) and likely time of impact. The intention of this section is to briefly provide enough details to explain to the community why they need to undertake actions.
  • Action statement – This section provides a call to action for the community to follow. This section should also be emphasised during creation to ensure it is clear to the community.
  • What you should do – This section provides clear actions for the community to follow based on the notification level and hazard.
  • Impacts in your area – This section provides information on the potential or actual impacts in the area to aid the community’s decision making and direct them to additional sources of information.
  • More information – This section provides essential further contact or static information for the community such as contact numbers, website address, broader safety information.
