The state government doesn't have any emergency powers over Telstra;
that is a federal matter. But usually the telcos will cooperate in an
emergency without a formal instruction. The heads of the federal and
Victorian emergency agencies are on a conference panel in front of me
at APCOA 2009 the moment, so I guess I could ask them.
The Victorians are talking about the new mobile emergency command
post they got just before the fires and have put to good use.
