These alerts are a test (this time) so don't have a heart attack when/if yours starts wailing like an emergency vehicle. Not a bad thing, in fact, could save your life, didn't know other countries already used this warning.

It's been used in some other countries for years.

In the USA they have missing children alerts.

I won't receive any alerts as I've disabled the function on my phone.

And if you are driving at the time it would be an offence to read it.

Me too, even though it isn't set to silent. I suppose it depends how loud the alarm is
Thank you for the days, the days you gave me

Interestingly, I leave my phone set to silent (unless Marge is away), but the report says that despite that the sound would come through even though the phone has sound turned off.  I wonder how they manage to do that.
