UK Emergency Alert Service

Emergency Alerts is a UK government service that will warn you if there is a danger nearby. In an emergency, your mobile phone or tablet will receive an alert with advice about how to stay safe.


On Sunday 23 April 2023 at 3pm there will be a national test of the UK Emergency Alerts service.


However, some charities are concerned about the potential safety risks to people who have been subject to domestic abuse who may be keeping their phones hidden from an abuser, as the alert is a loud, siren-like sound with a screen message and vibration. Survivors can opt out from receiving emergency alerts to avoid their device from being detected.
