A system that sends emergency alerts to mobile phones within areas affected by flooding, industrial accidents or other local risks is to be tested in the UK.
Government pilots in Easingwold, in North Yorkshire, Leiston, in Suffolk, and Glasgow city centre will evaluate how the public react to the alerts.
Could they cut all networks off to the public making calls and sending texts in order to get their message out. Even if they could, would it work? Or would we get our messages 8 hours later when impending emergency event has already happened?..
I misread this, I saw 'little wooden box'. Makes more sense to me given as how the Tories and their LibDem cohort have declared war on the poor!
Cameron has recently tried to make out he is Mr Nice by wanting to get involved in Syria and at long last we can see through him.
He is a sociopath, and his dopey wife! It is all to make himself look good with a general election on the horizon.
Maybe Boris will give everyone a free bike for xmas next or a little wooden boat
who knows this is one crazy, selfish government. Maybe we should not build on the marshes and the flood planes ... you tell them Cameron! tell wimpey and all the other developers, NO! 70 miles from the seaside?? Hmmm .... can squeeze in a lot of houses in that 70 miles.
