Emergency Mobile Alert system test

24 November 2019, 11:59 PM

Testing of the Emergency Mobile Alert system is being held this Sunday, 24 November 2019.

Emergency Mobile Alerts are text messages about emergencies sent by authorised emergency agencies to compatible mobile phones.

In the event of an emergency the alerts target areas affected by significant hazards, and will only be sent when there is a serious threat to life, health or property.
