In 2019, EMALTE (Australia) and Scott Technical Instruments (Scottech NZ) installed 3 tsunami warning systems for Timaru District Council.
Situated in a beautiful region of New Zealand, the Timaru district nestles on the eastern Pacific coast of the South Island. A home to approximately 9,000 people, Timaru boasts diverse geography including 2 large harbours, picturesque bays and rolling hills. Earthquakes however, are a very real hazard since the district lies on several fault lines. The risk of an earthquake and a consequent tsunami necessitate continued strategic emergency planning by the Timaru District Council.

The EMALTE solution includes Whelen US world class hardware, and innovative software which ensures that authorities receive instant warning of impending danger allowing them to initiate the public warning system. Based on the principal of ‘Alert Inform and Direct’ an audible tone Alerts, a pre-recorded voice message to Informs; and live PA announcements Directs, thus eliminating confusion and maintaining order.
