What is Emergency Mobile Alert?
Emergency Mobile Alerts are messages about emergencies sent by authorised emergency agencies to capable mobile phones. The alerts are designed to keep people safe and are broadcast to all capable phones from targeted cell towers.
The alerts can be targeted to areas affected by serious hazards and will only be sent when there is a serious threat to life, health, or property, and in some cases for test purposes.
If you get an alert, read the message and take it seriously. It will tell you what the emergency is and what to do. It will also tell you which agency sent the message and if needed, where to go for more information.
The next nationwide test of Emergency Mobile Alert is on 25 November 2018. The test alert will be sent by the Ministry of Civil Defence & Emergency Management between 6 and 7 pm.
