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, bushfires and flood notifications.

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.
