At 3pm this Sunday, 23rd April, 2023 a UK-wide test of an emergency alert is due to take place on EVERY MOBILE PHONE in the country.

This means that most phones or tablets will make a siren-like sound for up to 10 seconds, including devices switched to silent mode. Devices will also vibrate and display a message about the test.

Sometimes those living with domestic abuse have a mobile phone hidden ‘just in case’. Please remember to switch it off on Sunday 23rd April.

Your hidden phone must be switched off during this time to avoid discovery.

Even if this post doesn’t apply to you, please share anyway. You will be connected to someone living with domestic abuse right now and sharing this information could help them stay safe.
