What is an RCB alert
Alert RCB is an SMS threat warning system. On RCB alert no need to sign up. People who find themselves in the area of a potential life-threatening crisis will receive a short text message (SMS) on their mobile phone with information about the type of threat, its location, and the source of the warning. It does not matter which operator we have concluded a contract with.
The amendment to the Telecommunications Law and certain other acts of June 11, 2018 imposes on all operators the obligation to immediately send a message to all users in the area specified by the RCB director. Messages are issued only in exceptional situations that may pose a real threat to human life and health.
