Radio intercoms are popping up across Brisbane to help people in crisis.
They’re being used by local councils to provide information, but they’re also being used for public service announcements.
The radio stations are broadcasting information about the Brisbane Crisis Hotline at 1:30pm on Thursday, November 8.
If you’re in crisis, call Lifeline on 13 11 14.
Local councils can also broadcast information about Crisis Centres, the Brisbane Fire Service and emergency services through their media outlets.
If it’s an emergency, call Triple Zero on 131 444.
Brisbane Council has also launched a website to help the public access crisis information through the Intercoms.
This includes information on how to access information on the Brisbane Community Support and Crisis Centre services, how to use the Intermediate Intercom, and how to get information about local crisis services.
Local residents and businesses can also get information on information on their local services through the Brisbane County Council website.
