Ashburton District Council is reminding residents to
be aware that a test Emergency Mobile Alert will be happening on Sunday 26
November between 6.00pm and 7.00pm.
The Ministry of Civil Defence will send a test
Emergency Mobile Alert to enabled phones on Sunday evening, and people should
check that their phone is capable of receiving the alert.
“You don’t have to download an app or
subscribe to a service in order the get the alert on your phone, but you should
ensure that your phone is enabled. You can do this by checking the list of
capable phones on the Ministry of Civil Defence website and making sure that
your phone has the latest update,” Council Civil Defence Controller Jim
