Interesting.....

We've sent out a fair few live Emergency Alerts over here this month for the fires.

MrBEVS of volunteer NZ Civil Defence Force has this moment stated that my mobile is too old for the job. Bah! It is a mobile phone. It works and does the job. So is his works mobile phone though being a Spark Tough jobby.

Irony there as his phone is tough for conditions, but not savvy enough to receive an alert.

Anyway in the event of a Tsunami we are apparently all to use our common sense . Right

its interesting to see how the systems differ between the countries.
The Australian system works on all mobiles, smartphone or not, any network, regardless of age. Doesn't matter how old ypur phone, if we send a message out and you are in the target area, you get it.

If NZ can make a half-arsed job of something, then the powers that be will go for it. Doing stuff cheaply is the main thing, doing something well and right isn't important.
I have a smartphone, just not a new enough one to get the alert.

​​​​​Hmm common sense hey? My view is that it ain't so common
