Don’t panic! Emergency text alerts are coming to your phone

Could a text message save your life in an emergency? From this summer, the UK Government will finally catch up with other countries and start sending out alerts to all mobile phones in the event of major accidents and disasters – why has it taken so long to implement this and what are the pitfalls to avoid?

Just as we recently wrote about how telecommunications are a vital yet vulnerable service in the event of civil unrest and war, they can be just as important in the event of emergencies and natural disasters.

The UK Government will, later this year, launch a formal system for sending out emergency alerts to all phones in a given region, or the entire country, in the event of major incidents or extreme weather that may pose a risk to life.
