3MDR would like to see everyone staying safe this summer.
For all the information on what you can and can not do during the fire season please check with the following agencies:
Please note that 3MDR is NOT an official emergency broadcaster as we do not have the required infrastructure or personnel to meet the requirements of this role. Listeners are advised to keep an ear on the ABC as the State's official public emergency broadcaster. Be sure to have a battery powered radio on hand throughout the summer fire season.
Keep an eye on www.emergency.vic.gov.au for updates on incidents in your local area.
As 3MDR broadcasts from the bushfire prone area of the Dandenong Ranges, the radio station will be closed on days declared CODE RED. Announcements advising listeners to check www.emergency.vic.gov.au and to tune into the ABC will be scheduled throughout the automated music playlist.
