Das Notfallwarnsystem wird am 23. April landesweit getestet

Das neue Notfallwarnsystem der britischen Regierung ist in Betrieb und wird es Menschen ermöglichen, über ihr Mobiltelefon kontaktiert zu werden, wenn Leben in Gefahr sind. Es wird verwendet, um Sie in Notfällen zu warnen, wie schwere Überschwemmungen.

Notfallwarnungen werden an alle kompatiblen Mobiltelefone innerhalb eines Risikogebiets gesendet. They don’t track your location, need your phone number, or collect personal data. Only the government and the emergency services will be able to send them. If you don’t have a mobile phone, you’ll still be kept informed through other channels.

If you get an Emergency Alert on your phone, you’ll hear a loud, siren-like sound. A message on your screen will tell you about the emergency and how best to respond. You’ll be able to check an alert is genuine at gov.uk/alerts. To ensure the Emergency Alerts system works effectively, we’ll be carrying out a nationwide test on Sunday 23rd April between 3-3:30pm.

If you receive an alert, read the alert carefully and follow the instructions. You can opt out of receiving emergency alerts; for more information on how to opt out please go to gov.uk/alerts.
