The recent flood events in #Germany and beyond triggered a discussion about how to warn citizens reliably and effectively. The current proprietary app environment failed at this – again!

Already last year we called for #CellBroadcasts [1/2]


@fsfe I thought France was the only country left not using Cell Broadcast!?

I have them enabled and travel all over Europe. Only in northern Italy have I received those (a test message as you sign into their cells for the first time after a while, looks like).

Other countries might implement them but I've never seen one. Instead they do the silly and expensive one-by-one spam. 🤷

Anyway, the way to get this given proper attention is to get in touch with your MP and ask them to raise the issue with your government.
