Information

How are coldAlerts sent

coldAlerts will be issued when there is a change in the forecasted cold weather conditions from the national "Cold weather alerts" service.

You will receive a coldAlert when the alert Level changes from:

  • Level 1 to Level 2 - you need to be prepared
  • Level 3 or Level 4 - you will need to take action

We will send the all clear Level 1 (Conditions Normal) once the weather improves.
