Emergency Broadcasting

Plenty Valley fm is the official emergency broadcaster for the municipalities of Banyule, Nillumbik & Whittlesea, where our studios are based on Mill Park.

During Emergencies such as bushfires, floods, storm or other incident, Plenty Valley FM will provide prompt updates when directed to do so by authorised agencies, incident controllers and the state control centre to provide vital, up to date information to our listeners. Where necessary, we will suspend regular programming and engage the State Emergency Warning System (SEWS).

Our Volunteers attend a number of Municipal Emergency Planning Committee meetings throughout the year. We do this as part of our Community Obligations and to stay up to date with current emergency management processes in the Municipalities listed above, ensuring that we are in step with current capabilities and broadcasting needs. 

Plenty Valley fm prides itself on our emergency broadcasting role in keeping the community informed and is dedicated to supporting the efforts of our local emergency services to keep our community safe.
