Emergency information for visitors

Be prepared in the event of an emergency during your stay by reading our Visitor Emergency Information Booklet



There are a number of Beach Emergency Numbering (BEN) signs at various beaches and national parks to assist emergency services in getting to emergencies faster.

In an emergency dial triple zero (000) and quote the unique code on the nearest sign for emergency assistance. The signs can also be used to report shark sightings to water police on 9442 8600.

Angel Rings are installed at a number of coastal rock fishing locations. The installation of the rings was a collaborative project between Recfishwest and the Shire of Denmark in 2016.  If you notice an ring missing, please contact the Shire Office.
