Incident Updates

The Live Incidents Map is a free tool we’ve made available to provide a visual overview of active incidents ESA services are responding to. News Alerts provide you with updates on incidents impacting the community, and ESA News shares the general happenings within the ESA.

In conjunction with the launch of our new website, we have made some changes to the Live Incidents Map.  Now, for the first time the Live Incidents Map will include ACT Ambulance Service incidents.  Ambulance incidents are shown at a ‘suburb level’, not an exact location.  We have done this deliberately to ensure that we maintain the privacy of our patients. 

We plan to add ACT Rural Fire Service and ACT State Emergency Service information to the Live Incidents Map in the near future. Watch this space!
