The Alpes-Maritimes prefecture is organising a public alert exercise on 19 January

On Friday, 19 January 2024, from 10am to 12pm, the Alpes-Maritimes prefecture will be organising a tsunami warning drill for the general public using the new 'FR-Alert' information system, which broadcasts a warning message accompanied by an alarm on mobile phones. This system was recently used when storm Aline hit the Alpes-Maritimes. 

As this warning message is broadcast along the French coast via the relay antennas of telephone operators, the message might reach residents of the Principality of Monaco. As this is simply a drill, the public do not need to respond or take shelter. So, there's no need to call the emergency numbers 18 and 112 for information.
