 In an emergency, can you be found?

Make sure your phone address details are accurate—it could save your life

Did you know that the address details you give to your phone company may be used to send help if you make a Triple Zero (000) emergency call? Your phone company is required by law to provide your address to a secure database which is used for responding to emergency situations. When you call Triple Zero, the address details that are stored in the Integrated Public Number Database will automatically appear on the operator's screen and be passed on to the emergency service organisation you request (police, fire or ambulance).
