Current Emergencies


Local Governments of the Peel region are encouraging local residents and visitors to download the two tried and tested emergency apps to stay prepared and informed. Both apps provide users with important information including their location details, proximity alerts, emergency advice and more. This project is made possible by National Disaster Resilience funding.



The 'Prepare the Peel' Project is funded by the National Disaster Resilience Program, and aims to;

  • Raise emergency preparedness in the Peel tourism industry, focusing on the short term accommodation sector
  • Promote consistent messaging at the 'Looking', 'Booking' and 'Checking-in' stages of a visitor's journey 
  • Better prepare the traveller by encouraging the use of emergency 'alerting' and 'reporting' mobile Apps and resources
