All mobile phones in the UK will have a warning system for fatal situations
To test the system, an alert will be issued across the UK on the evening of Sunday, 23 April, with everyone receiving a message on their mobile phone.
The British government has announced that a siren-like warning will be sent to every mobile phone in Britain from next month in a trial of a new public warning system for life-threatening situations, including severe weather. To test the system, an alert will be issued across the UK on the evening of Sunday, 23 April, with everyone receiving a message on their mobile phone.
The government explained that the new emergency alert would be used rarely and would only be sent when there was an immediate threat to people’s lives, so it was possible that people might not receive a warning for months or even years. Although the warning of terrorist threats has not yet been included in this system, it may be included in the list of fatal events in the future. Cabinet Officer Minister Oliver Dowden said: “We are improving our national capacity to deal with a range of hazards, from floods to wildfires, through a new emergency warning system.
