Emergency alerts message
Emergency alerts message
Hello Plymouth – at 3pm this Sunday (23 April) people in the UK will receive a test emergency alert message on the home screen of their mobile phone, along with a sound and vibration for up to ten seconds.
For the test, you do not need to take any action – the sound and vibration will stop automatically after ten seconds. All people need to do is swipe away the message or click ‘OK’ on their phone’s home screen – just like for a ‘low battery’ warning or notification – and continue to use their phone as normal.
No personal data is collected. The Emergency Alerts system uses cell tower technology to reach phones in a defined geographical area – it in no way accesses or uses personal data.
Emergency Alerts is a government service that will warn you if there’s a danger to life nearby. In an emergency, your mobile phone or tablet will receive an alert with advice about how to stay safe.
Thank you.
