BG-ALERT: Bulgaria Prepares for Nationwide Emergency System Test
The nationwide trial for Bulgaria's new emergency alert system, BG-ALERT, is set to take place on November 29, following successful regional testing. This critical exercise, scheduled from 12:00 to 12:30 at noon, aims to evaluate the system's efficiency and reach on a national scale.
BG-ALERT will deliver a one-time text message in both Bulgarian and English to citizens' mobile phones. Alongside the text, a distinctive sound and vibration alert will be activated, ensuring notification even if the device is on silent mode, as noted by BG-ALERT officials.
Similar alert systems are already operational in neighboring countries like Romania and Greece, facilitating rapid communication with citizens during emergencies or critical situations.
