Nationwide test of Emergency Mobile Alert

15 May 2023, 3:10 PM

The Nationwide test of Emergency Mobile Alert is happening on Sunday 28 May, between 6pm and 7pm.
The alert will be broadcast from cell towers across New Zealand to all capable mobile phones. So, you don’t need to download an app or subscribe to a service to receive it.
In a real-life emergency situation, an alert may be sent to target areas affected by serious hazards. If you get an alert, stop, read the message, and take it seriously. It will tell you what the emergency is and what to do. It will also tell you which agency sent the message and if needed, where to go for more information.
Emergency Mobile Alerts are not meant to replace other emergency alerts or the need to take action after natural warnings. Don't wait for an official warning if you feel your life is in danger. Take immediate action.
