    In emergencies like the recent destructive storms, information is key to your safety. Civil Defence has a great service with their Mobile Emergency Alerts, but unfortunately there are some drawbacks : From Their Tweet Feb 26th 2023" - Didn’t get an Emergency Mobile Alert on your phone? - Emergency Mobile Alerts will only be sent when there is a serious threat to life, health or property. These are broadcast to affected areas, not specific phones. Other reasons may be: Your phone isn’t on our list of capable makes and models: getready.govt.nz/.../emergency.… Your phone needs updating Your phone is off, You're in flight mode, or Your out of cellular coverage.  Lert Info alerts reach you reliably: On all phones, 99% of the time. If you lose signal,  alerts will get through when you get signal. When you recharge your phone after a flat battery, You cancel flight mode, You drive into an area with signal, You switch your phone on.  only people who want our alerts will get them, for their chosen suburb, town or region.  Civil Defence creates original alerts. Lert Info creates original alerts too, eg we were the first to alert Auckland subscribers thunderstorms had stalled and to expect issues, however we also scour 100's of sources and have thousand of subscribers as our eyes and ears. We then personally send the information to you if your registered (free). Alerts could be anything, weather, a city fire with toxic smoke, life threatening health alerts like recalled foods, toxic shellfish, plus a whole lot more. - Full list of alerts Click Here  We advise you to have multiple sources but please don't rely on just Facebook. It risks your safety because of it's unreliability.
