24-7 Monitoring, Alerting and Reporting Centre ›
Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, staff at NEMA's Monitoring, Alerting and Reporting (MAR) Centre monitor, assess and report on potential hazards. When there is an emergency, the Centre will provide situational awareness so that NEMA or other agencies can respond – and, where necessary, alert the public about threats to life or property.
