Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2011 Week 08 Hansard (Thursday, 18 August 2011) . . Page.. 3588 ..
In January 2011, the Victorian Department of Justice on behalf of all jurisdictions formally invited the three national telecommunications carriers to submit a proposal to develop a location-based mobile telephone emergency warning capability.
Victoria is currently evaluating the location based telephony warning capability proposals formally submitted by all three telecommunications carriers.
(4) The information available to the ESA does not identify the number of messages that were sent to mobile phones that were outside of the ACT at the time of the trial.
(5) Emergency Alert identifies only those landline and mobile phones with billing addresses within the target area. Emergency Alert is not able to provide information to determine the number of mobile phones that were in Dunlop at the time of the trial that did not receive text messages because they had a billing address from outside the defined target area.
(6) It is not proposed to undertake any further trials of Emergency Alert before the commencement of the 2011-12 bushfire season.
The ability to target all mobile phones in a defined geographic location is not yet available for use with Emergency Alert as stated in my answer to question number 3.
