There would be some positives to having such a system in the interest of public safety which I don't think anyone could fault. The sinister in the story is the fact that the government will have an easy to use tool with which to identify any and all people who have one of these 'chips' in their phone. Of course they can already do this, most people don't consider this fact when buying a mobile phone however. I see this as more of a social experiment, how many people will consciously raise objection to their government implementing such a measure which could be easily misused and limits their personal liberty, tying them to the state even more than they already are?. Also, the possibility of such a measure being misused, constant tracking of people? Storage of data collected by these 'chips'? there are many possibilities.

This is just Big Bro BS.

Australia has implemented alerts to mobile phones
for bush-fires etc. and it has been tested.

They use the existing cell towers in the locations needed and mass-SMS evryone within the cell tower range.

NO NEED FOR A NEW CHIP.!
