[Instant News/Comprehensive Report] The British government recently announced that it will prepare to launch a nationwide public early warning information system, and plans to start testing it next month.
The system will send text messages to mobile phone users alerting them to potentially life-threatening events or situations.
The British media "Guardian" reported today (19) that the British Cabinet Office stated that the public early warning message system will send alert text messages to mobile phone users in the UK in the event of severe floods, fires or extreme weather.
The Cabinet Office also noted that similar systems have saved lives in countries such as the Netherlands and Japan.

At present, the system has been successfully tested in the two cities of East Suffolk (Suffolk) and Reading (Reading), and the test for the national public will be carried out on the evening of April 23.
At that time, mobile phone users will receive an alert text message, accompanied by vibration and a siren-like reminder.
The function of this system is also similar to my country's "disaster prevention and warning cell broadcast message system".
Lancaster Chancellor of the Exchequer Oliver Dowden said that the new emergency alert system will strengthen the UK's ability to warn and inform people in the face of threats such as floods and wildfires, and keep people safe.
Mark Hardingham, chairman of the British National Fire Chiefs Committee, also mentioned that after the system goes online, it will help emergency service units complete their work better and help more people.
