If you receive an alert, it will include a phone number or a link to the GOV.UK website for more information.

If you get an alert, stop what you’re doing and follow the on-screen instructions.
Remember, it is illegal to use a hand-held device while driving or riding.
If you do not have a compatible device, you’ll still be informed about an emergency. The emergency services have other ways to warn you when there is a threat to life.
Emergency alerts will not replace local news, radio, television or social media.
If you have a vision or hearing impairment, audio and vibration attention signals will let you know you have an emergency alert.
To avoid being put at risk, people experiencing domestic abuse, who for their safety have a secret or secondary mobile phone, are being advised to run off Emergency Alerts.
This is because the alert will play a sound even if the phone is on silent. The alert will play a loud siren and vibrate, and the phone will not be useable until the alert is acknowledged.
Refuge has made this video explaining how to turn off the emergency alerts on both Android and iPhone.
Emergency alerts will be sent in English. In Wales, they may also be sent in Welsh.

High blood pressure, or hypertension, rarely has noticeable symptoms. But if untreated, it increases the risk of serious problems such as heart attacks and strokes. Around 1 in 4 adults in the UK have high blood pressure, although many will not realise it.
With one in ten children not up to date with their vaccinations and at risk of becoming seriously unwell, this World Immunisation Week (24-30th April) the NHS is encouraging people to make sure they are up to date with their routine vaccinations at all life stages.
At 3pm on Sunday 23rd April there will be a test of the Government’s new, national Emergency Alerts system set up to warn people across the UK if there’s a danger to life nearby.
