How to Include the Emergency Services Search Form on Your Website

Version 0.8.8.2 of the Yabber Website Plugin in company with website framework 202406 updates includes a basic Emergency Services search engine. The search engine will return various services based on suburb and/or postcode and then redirect the user to a dedicated page. The feature is available with a shortcode and Elementor widget - this FAQ will introduce both.

The search functionality was introduced because we could and not necessarily because we should, but any feature that further reinforces your expertise in the market should be availed to your clients. The primary purpose of the Emergency API is to simply return basic data for property listings and property pages.

Version 0.8.8.2: Some earlier website frameworks may require an update before these features are enabled. If you don't have the necessary pages (any framework prior to 202406) you can build them yourself via basic instructions here.

  Emergency Search Example

The most basic usage of the search feature is introduced to your page with the shortcode of [bm_website_emergency_redirect]. The result:

Selecting any result will redirect the user to a dedicated page (that should ultimately funnel them based on our conditional understanding and then seek to create a conversion pathway).

The form, as shown above, will return details for police stations, fire stations, ambulance facilities, and SES facilities, but we may use shortcode to include one or more of these groups.

  WordPress Shortcode

The following shortcode attributes are available to alter the functionality and presentation of the returned form.

placeholder

The placeholder text (the text shown by default when the form loads) may be altered with placeholder="My Placeholder Text".

icon

The 'Font Awesome' icon shown in the input field may be altered with icon="fas fa-search" (where the icon code is sourced from the FA library).

sources

The returned results may be limited to one or more of the emergency categories. To search police stations only, use sources="1". To search fire facilities only, use sources="2,3". Available sources are as follows: 1. Police Stations. 2. Fire Metro. 3. Fire Country. 4. Ambulance Stations. 5. SES Facilities.

style & dd_style

Additional style attributes may be passed to alter general presentation. The style attribute will alter the parent container style, while the dd_style attribute will alter style of the input text field (example: dd_style="border: 2px solid #000000; background: #F9F9F9; font-weight: bold;". Using the dd_style will efffectively reset it to a basic textbox, so any style applied will be the only style applied.

  Elementor Widget

Shortcode introduces a little complexity, so if you're in the business of creating pages and wish to include the search form, load up Elementor, search for 'BM Search', and drag and drop the widget into your page. Select the 'Emergency' source, define the target facility types, create placeholder text, and save.

Emergency Search Elementor

  Pictured: Load up Elementor, search for 'BM Search', and drag and drop the widget into your page. Select the 'Emergency' source, define the target facility types, create placeholder text, and save. The search facility will immediately be returned.

The search facility is immediately returned to the page.

  Conclusion

Again, the feature is one that you may or may not use, but it's a certainly a valuable asset when tucked away into the backend crease of your website experience (fractional conctent shouldn't interfere with the core website experience, but the broader funnel can go in any direction).

Please ensure your framework is updated to the most recent version before using this feature.
