Emergency Alert System

What is the Emergency Alert System (EAS)?

  • The Government has set up the EAS to send emergency messages on extreme weather, serious public safety and health incidents and more to mobile phone users so that the public can adopt contingency measures quickly.
  • There are two alert levels for emergency messages, namely "Extreme Emergency Alert" and "Emergency Alert". Government department disseminating the emergency message will designate the alert level according to the urgency or severity of the circumstances in question.
  • Dissemination of the messages does not involve personal data or additional charges.

Reception of Emergency Messages

  • Information about the brands and models of handsets that support reception of emergency messages, the handset software version required to enable the feature and how to check the handset settings on reception of the messages can be found at OFCA’s webpage.
