Emergency Mobile Alert - this Sunday!

The Team from Ministry of Civil Defence & Emergency Management

A nationwide test of the Emergency Mobile Alert system is happening on Sunday 25 November between 6pm and 7pm.

It doesn’t matter which network you are on. Any capable phone in the target area during the broadcast period should receive the alert

Emergency Mobile Alerts are not meant to replace other emergency alerts, or the need to take action after natural warnings.

You still need to be prepared for an emergency and you should not wait to get an alert before you act. If you feel your life is in danger, don’t wait for an official warning. Take immediate action.
