Apparently one of the organisations involved in/profiting from this is the same company which was responsible for the system which ended in Postmasters being prosecuted/jailed wrongly for alleged accounting fraud.

It`ll ring for about 10 seconds. It`ll also probably be the last time it ever sounds on your phone but if it ever does sound off again maybe, just maybe, you`ll be glad you didn`t turn off the feature.

And although my eyes were open
They just might as well be closed

Threat to life or health emergencies. Like I said it will likely never be used or if so incredibly rarely. Many nations across the globe, including many in Europe, have similar systems in place and many of those systems have been created by the same firm that has organised the one in the UK.
This has been in the planning for a few years now and has nothing to do with the Russian fishing boats and research vessels swarming around our critical offshore infrastructure so rest easy.

Aye I guess in such a situation you might be warned and depending on your location take a appropriate action.

Aye for you maybe but those of us further away might appreciate being told to maybe bring our washing in off the line.

Another poorly designed system. My daughter`s phone rang - 30 secs early. My wife`s didn`t ring but received a silent message which appeared on her screen for about 2 secs and not long enough time to be read. Then it disappeared.
I`d turned off the notifications

Three of my friends on the 3 network agree still waiting for the alert.

I asked some others and they`d never heard of it and didn`t get any alert.

It`s all gone swimmingly.

I`d like to know what the failure rate was because it doesn`t seem very reliable.

That`s kind of the point of a test tbf. If it fails after the learning from this, that`s a different story.

Surely then we can expect another test. Or are they just going to ignore it which seems to be the present narrative.

As someone stated today, it would take 20 minutes for a Soviet missile to hit London from launch.

Alarm would go off, but where do you go?🤔

Not just London that needs to worry. The declassified Soviet docs had Rosyth as a prime target too.

A single strike on Stirling would take out Rosyth and Faslane in a oner.
Keeps the cost down you know.
Why pay for two nukes when one is adequate 😳

I`d sooner go immediately than hang around for the radiation poisoning.

Lots of military helicopters been flying over Dunfermline in the past few days. No doubt for Chick`s new hat.

Here in Oz, we have a very efficient phone alarm system that issues warnings in emergencies - e.g. bushfires, cyclones or floods. We frequently have these sorts of events, so we have had plenty of time to perfect the system.

It is very effective and can issue narrowly targeted alerts, only alerting phones within the signal radius of selected telephone towers.
