YellowBird wins resilience award

johnboy 2 August 2010 2


The Insurance Council of Australia announces that Canberra’s Professor Stephen Robson has won the award for his emergency alert warning system known as YellowBird.

The ICA believes YellowBird makes a significant contribution to community resilience.

YellowBird is a simple modification to standard AM/FM radio circuitry during an emergency that allows a tone, which is broadcast in routine radio transmissions, to automatically switch on the radio to receive emergency warnings.

For a full demonstration of YellowBird go to the following link.
