star this property answer text <p><strong><em> </em></strong></p><p>Cabinet Office is working with the Home Office and the police to explore the types of emergency where a national mobile alerting system can add value, beyond the mobile alerting schemes already in place in the UK. In order to inform any technical solution, these emergency scenarios will be explored in depth to establish where and when in the evolution of an incident a mobile alerting scheme offers the best opportunity to reduce harm to citizens.</p><p>Once we have fully assessed the need for an alerting scheme further work would be undertaken including exploring how situational awareness might be obtained, thresholds for activation and how the content of alert messages stands the best chance of eliciting helpful behaviours from the recipients. This is not without complexity since in terrorist-related incidents the protagonists will also receive the same message.</p><p> </p><p>Additionally, a scheme used for major incidents stands the chance of being used infrequently. To ensure effectiveness, there will be a need for a carefully managed media campaigns.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Those organisations with a key role in responding to an emergency have a duty under the Civil Contingencies Act (2004) to warn and inform the public. To fulfil this duty, a variety of channels are utilised including social and broadcast media and mobile alerting such as the flood warning system. Given the cross-cutting ownership of the issue, the Minister for Implementation has asked the Cabinet Office to coordinate a review on whether there is a case for a national mobile alerting scheme, working with relevant lead departments and interested parties. This work has included a review of schemes used in other countries to inform our thinking.</p> more like this
