Listen out for the emergency alert test

19 April 2023

On Sunday 23 April 2023 at 3pm the government will test its national emergency alert system.

An emergency alert is a loud, siren-like sound with a message on your mobile phone screen to alert you if there's a danger to life nearby and to give advice about how to stay safe.

The alert will also be sent to all council mobile phones which run Android 11 or above.
