Emergency Meeting Points

Do you know where your nearest Emergency Meeting Point is?There are over 270 Emergency Meeting Points in Tasmania. 

Emergency Meeting Points are pre-arranged easily-found locations in rural and remote parts of Tasmania where you can meet up with an ambulance or other emergency services.

Emergency Meeting Points are designed to maximise the speed and certainty of emergency services reaching the correct destination in rural situations which are not well sign-posted or mapped, or with which emergency personnel cannot be expected to be familiar.

Each Emergency Meeting Point is signposted on the ground. Many are at key road intersections.

Emergency Meeting Points are managed by Forestry Tasmania.

If you live or work in a rural area, you should make a note of nearby Emergency Meeting Points. If you require emergency assistance and expect the ambulance or other emergency services might have difficulty locating you, arrange for someone to meet them at the nearest Emergency Meeting Point and guide them to your location.

The following maps are provided by Forestry Tasmania. Each map is about 4.5Mb so it is best to save the map to your computer first by right clicking the link with your mouse, save it on your hard drive and open the file once download is complete.
