We’ve upgraded our Emergency Markers

Liveable Places and Spaces

While out getting your daily exercise, you may have spotted a green sign with white text in one of our beautiful parks or along a walking trail.

These are Emergency Markers and can be your gateway to help in an emergency as they save our emergency responders time trying to locate you.

Each marker has a unique code that is linked to the Emergency Services Telecommunications authority (ESTA) system. When you call 000, knowing the location of your nearest marker can help ESTA quickly determine your GPS coordinates as well as nearest road access point and other navigational data to help emergency responders.

We recently conducted a full audit of our Emergency Markers to identify any damaged and missing markers within our parks and along our walking tracks. These have all now been replaced so emergency services can respond quickly where they are needed.

If you spot a damaged or illegible marker, please contact us to report this issue.
