To make informed decisions during an emergency, you need information and you need it fast. A comprehensive icon library that is implemented constantly across Australia, enables fast identification and easy interpretation of the information provided. This allows users to consume visual information without the need to interrogate further. Due to the popularity of our emergency icons and framework, we are offering free access via a creative commons http://creativecommons.org licence. Please send your request to Icon Request to receive a .zip file of all icons.
Suitable acknowledgement of the source must be included wherever any of these icons or derivatives are used.
Icons are generally self-explanatory, the shape depicts the type/subject of what is being communicated. Some may be a little abstract at first, so a full list is provided below for clarification.
Official cautionary statement from an authoritative source communicating the existence of a hazard that has, is, will or may be perceived to have an impact on public safety.
Official near time report from an authoritative source communicating the existence of a hazard that has the potential to escalate that was, is, will or may be perceived to impact on public safety.
You are encouraged to submit Sensory Observationstm to communicate what you see, hear, smell and do during an emergency.
The table below outlines icons used to depict the different types of warnings. The icon will appear in the centre of the locality, municipality or forecast area mentioned in an official warning. As there is no nationally recognised standard for warnings icons across all hazards and risk environments, we have implemented one of our own.
|Advice||Emergency Warning||Evacuation||Watch and Act||All Clear|
The table below outlines icons used to depict the different types of Incidents. In most cases, the icon will appear at the location the incident was reported. Where emergency service providing the information have not given sufficient spatial information it will appear within one kilometre or default to the centre of a municipality. In these cases, this will be noted in the ‘Further Information’ section of the Incident detail. As there is no suitable nationally recognised standard for incident icons across all hazards and risk environments, we have implemented one of our own.
|Motor Vehicle Accident|
|Non Structure Fire|
|Tree Down Traffic Hazard|
