Constituency Question- Internet access & Emergency Notifications

For my constituents and indeed others in regional areas, internet access is often unreliable at the best of times. Let alone in emergency situations, where power and phone coverage is often severely hampered. Being able to successfully click through to the URL is accordingly, in some cases, simply impossible.
I therefore ask: why is far more comprehensive, meaningful information not included, in the first instance, in the text message?

Condolence Motion – Victorian Bushfires

It is with great sadness that I stand here today to pay respect to those who lost their lives either whilst performing their duties to save others’ lives and properties or whilst protecting their own homes here in Victoria during what has been a shocking fire season throughout our state. Bushfires have a devastating effect on our land, communities and animals, with the ultimate devastation being the loss of lives.
