Open Newsletter – 19th April 2023

You may be aware that on Sunday 23rd April 2023 at 3pm, the Government will be carrying out a national test of the UK Emergency Alerts Service. Emergency Alerts is a UK government service that will warn you if there’s a danger to life nearby.

In an emergency, your mobile phone or tablet will receive an alert with advice about how to stay safe.

The alert that you will receive on Sunday, will say:

This is a test of Emergency Alerts, a new UK government service that will warn you if there’s a life-threatening emergency nearby. In a real emergency, follow the instructions in the alert to keep yourself and others safe. Visit gov.uk/alerts for more information. This is a test. You do not need to take any action.

We are making all care pros and clients aware and would like to reassure everyone that there is no cause for concern or panic.

Should you want anymore information or wish to speak to a member of the team about this, please don’t hesitate to contact the office.

Kind Regards,

Rebecca (Care Manager)
