National Test of the UK Emergency Alerts service – Sunday 23 April 2023 Posted on 24 Mar 2023

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.

Vulnerable people may have secret/hidden mobile phones, and they should either switch these phones off or activate aeroplane mode.
