Beach Emergency Numbers (BEN) Signage (DPIRD-054)

The Beach Emergency Numbers (BEN) system is a coding system, designed to improve emergency response times by installing signs with unique numbers at beach access points.

These signs will provide specific location information, vital when emergency services are deployed in the event of a shark sighting, attack or other beach emergencies.

This data set provides the location of each BEN sign.
