Nationwide test of Emergency Mobile Alert on November 25, 2018

The nationwide test is a necessary part of making sure the Emergency Mobile Alert system works well. The nationwide test is sent to cell towers all over New Zealand and we expect approximately three million phones are capable of receiving the alert. Last year we received thousands of feedback submissions from people which helped us evaluate and improve the Emergency Mobile Alert system. The nationwide test will be held on the evening of 25 November 2018 from 6 pm to 7 pm.
