UK Emergency Alerts

Free delivery over £60

Emergency Alerts is a new service from the UK government. In the event of emergencies, the system will enable people to be contacted via their mobile phone when lives are in danger, such as severe flooding.

 

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 and stay safe. 

 

Emergency Alerts are sent to all compatible mobile phones within an area of risk. 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.

 

You can find out more information regarding the reasons why you might get an alert here - Reasons for alerts.

 

Emergency alerts are broadcast from mobile phone masts. Every compatible mobile phone, within its range, will receive an alert if one is issued.
