I don't want my child to get warning messages on their mobile telephone. Can I prevent this?

No. There is no way to prevent your child from receiving a warning message if they have their own mobile telephone. This is because you cannot opt out of being sent warning messages sent through Emergency Alert.

It is important discuss emergency preparedness with your child, so they are able to act if they receive a warning message.

If your child receives a warning message on their mobile telephone while they are at school, they must follow the emergency procedures in place at their school.
