Millions of smartphones and tablets in the UK will ring out and vibrate for up to 10 seconds as part of an emergency alert test at 3pm on Sunday 23 April.
Public emergency alerts, which will use the 4G and 5G mobile networks, enable ‘urgent messages’ to be broadcast to a defined area when there is ‘an imminent risk to life, such as wildfires or severe flooding’ (as mentioned here).
How will the alert look like?
Depending on the device and its settings, mobile phones or tablet may do one or more of the following:
-Make a loud siren-like sound, even if it’s set on silent.
-Read out the alert.
The sound and vibration will last for about 10 seconds.
The alert will say:
This is a test of Emergency Alerts, a new UK government service that will warn you if there’s a life-threatening emergency nearby.
In an actual emergency, follow the instructions in the alert to keep yourself and others safe.
Visit gov.uk/alerts for more information.
This is a test. You do not need to take any action.
There is, however, a way to dodge these test alerts: Switch off your phone or ditch the ‘Smart’Phone altogether. Just ignore the perpetrators.
The government is pushing fear into the public along with their climate change narrative. They did it with covid, and they’re at it again. Perhaps they are also checking out the efficiency of 5G and how many people they can reach and control…?
