Today the NSW SES has launched new Tsunami Evacuation Maps. These cover the whole NSW coast and show those areas that lie under 10m above sea level, are 1km or less inland and are 10km up an estuary. IMPORTANT: this message is not a tsunami warning. In the very unlikely event of a land threat tsunami, the NSW SES will be asking people in the red zone to seek shelter at least 10m up in a sturdy concrete building or to move outside the red zone area to an area of lower risk. To view the maps go here: http://nswses.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=d54531ab176d48c4951b7fd40c27be68 It is important to note that these maps are not inundation maps, and represent the areas considered most at risk from modelling of potential tsunami and effects observed elsewhere. The NSW SES is working on getting more data and refining maps to show potential inundation and evacuation routes in the future. For safety and preparedness advice go to www.tsunamisafe.com.au
Soldiers from across Australia were trained with the new Reaper weapon carriage system at Majura training area near Canberra on 5 May 2016.
The Advanced Accuracy Solutions Reaper weapon support system allows soldiers to carry and more-effectively direct fire using medium-to-heavy machine guns while on patrol. The new Reaper system will be trialled by frontline infantry battalions over the next six months to assess its suitability. #GoodSoldiering
Last month, we were all shocked to hear two dogs might be stuck home alone without food or water after their pet sitter fell ill. With that in mind, could this be the very simple way to prevent it happening again?
