The UK Government are sending out test emergency alert texts this coming Tuesday between 1pm and 2pm this will be a test event and no one needs to worry.

These texts will alert you of a danger to life and to take immediate action if something bad happens, it is a great way to alert you which will keep you and yours safe.

The alert will say “This is a mobile network operator test of the Emergency Alerts service. You do not need to take any action. To find out more, search for gov.uk/alerts.” with this text you may hear a siren.

According to the government website some Android handsets such as a Samsung may not get any alert, so it seems for this test its for Apple users.

The alerts come from a mobile phone mast so does not need your number and the alerts will only be sent in an area that is participating.
