A new alert system that can send out messages to all mobile phone users in the event of an emergency or disaster will be introduced in Thailand next year, according to the government.

Cell broadcast technology allows emergency warnings to be sent to all devices connected to mobile networks within a specific target area or across the nation, depending on the importance.

Both the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) say the service could be ready for use in mid-2025. However, the system still requires the government to set up a dedicated command center. 

The new system will be used to send alerts to all mobile phone users in Thailand, including visiting foreigners, on matters of public safety in five languages – Thai, English, Chinese, Japanese, and Russian. There is no need to download an app.

The service is a collaborative project between the NBTC, mobile phone operators, and the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation.
