government’s new emergency alerts system
Information: the government’s new emergency alerts system
The government’s new emergency alerts system is live and will enable people to be contacted via their mobile phone when lives are in danger. The system will be tested nationally on Sunday 23 April 2023 at 3pm.
An emergency alert is a loud, siren-like sound with a message on
your mobile phone or tablet screen.
To check an alert is genuine, visit GOV.UK.
All education settings should take the opportunity to make themselves aware of emergency alerts, reasons why anyone may get an alert and how they work.
