Government emergency alert system


Please see the link above about this new initiative by the government. Emergency Alerts is a UK 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. There will be a test of this system on 23 April 2023


The government does not need to know your phone number or location to send you an alert.

Emergency alerts will only be sent by:
