Emergency Alerts - A New Service from the UK Government

About Emergency Alerts

Emergency Alerts is a new service from the UK government. It’s expected to launch in autumn 2022.

Emergency alerts will warn you if there’s a danger to life nearby.

In an emergency, your phone or tablet will receive an alert with advice about how to stay safe.

Reasons you might get an alert

The government and mobile phone networks are testing emergency alerts.
You may get an alert if you live in, or travel through, a test area.

How it works

Emergency alerts are broadcast from mobile phone masts. Every compatible mobile phone or tablet in range will receive an alert.

The government does not need your phone number to send you an alert.  For more information visit https://www.gov.uk/alerts
