Emergency Alerts service

Liz Blamire

24th March 2023

On the 23rd April, the UK Government will test the Emergency Alerts service, by sending a test alert to every mobile phone in the UK.

In future, these will be used to warn you if there is a danger to life nearby.

For example you may get alerts about:

  • severe flooding
  • fires
  • extreme weather

However, the Emergency Alert system could also be used to warn you of a local health emergency, such as an industrial accident releasing toxic fumes.
