If you see a post from a local council, police local area command, emergency service or other community organisation you can reply to and view other responses to that post.
If the post was just to your suburb then your reply will only be seen by residents in your suburb.
If the organisation has posted their message to a group of suburbs, your post will be seen by all the suburbs that received the post. The residents of these suburbs will see your first name, last name initial, your profile photo and your suburb.
You can also choose to send a private message instead.
Remember, local organisation as outlined above can post to suburbs that they operate in they can only see their own posts and replies to these posts. They can’t read content that is shared between members or access your (or any other member’s) profile.
