Logan Early Warning
As part of Logan City Council’s ongoing commitment to assist members of the community, to plan, prepare and respond to disasters, Logan City Council has teamed up with the Early Warning Network to provide residents and businesses of the City of Logan with free early warning alerts for potentially severe weather and bushfires.
The 24/7, 365 days per year Logan Early Warning service allows residents and businesses to plan, prepare for and respond to severe weather events before it happens. This service allows the community to become familiar with potential hazards and risks that may affect our city and encourages residents and business owners to take early action to minimise any potential damage that may occur during severe weather.
What do I receive?
You will receive alerts for potentially dangerous weather and bushfires within the City of Logan. There may also be a need to provide custom messages from Logan City Council related to disaster and emergency situations.
How do I receive the information?
Residents can receive alerts via push notification (by downloading the app), SMS, email and text-to-voice for landlines.

- Alerts from across Australia based on your GPS location as well as your registered residential address

Current EWN users
City of Logan residents who are currently signed up to receive alerts from EWN will have their registration transferred to the Logan Early Warning service. You can 'opt out' of the email and SMS alerts if you no longer wish to receive them. Residents who have the EWN smartphone app are encouraged to download the free Logan Early Warning smartphone app as this app provides additional features to assist Logan residents.
