Dear Residents

Emergency Alerts

The government is launching a new Emergency Alerts system this summer, which will warn people on their mobile phone or tablet if there’s a danger to life nearby, such as severe flooding, fires, public health emergencies or a terror attack and will include advice about how to stay safe. Councils are encouraged to raise awareness of the initiative through their communication channels ahead of the national launch. For further details see:
