“Let's remember to move cars to a safe place if they were previously parked under trees,” RCB added. When driving a car, we should pay special attention, firstly because of the possibility of breaking branches and trees, and secondly, because when leaving a sheltered road into an open space there is a risk of the car being blown away.

In cases that have or may have a safety significance, you should immediately inform the fire brigade by calling the emergency number 112.

What is an RCB alert

Alert RCB is an SMS threat warning system. You do not need to sign up for an RCB alert. 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.
