Emergency Alerts Campaign

Emergency Alerts is a UK Government service that will warn you if there is a danger to life nearby.

In an emergency, your mobile phone or tablet will receive an alert with advice about how to stay safe only where there is a risk to life, either locally or nationally.

This could include public health emergencies, severe floods, fires, and industrial incidents.

The service will be sending out a test alert on Sunday 23 April. The test alert will be sent to all compatible phones in the UK. It will clearly indicate that no action is required and that this is a test of the system.

A stakeholder toolkit for all partners, employers is available here.
