When a crisis is on its way, every second counts.

So think how crucial warning of a dangerous flood or snow storm could be.

Our unique, free app sends you alerts about a huge range of emergencies in your area - and tells you exactly what to do when they happen.

Download it and get instant alerts about severe weather and other emergencies near you, as well as those threatening family and friends.

And since being prepared is half the battle, the app is packed with advice on getting ready for a host of common emergencies – such as fires, storms and power cuts.
