As we mark the official start of the Hurricane Season, the ODPM is testing the emergency Short Message System (SMS).

The platform allows persons to receive short emergency text messages, disseminated through their mobile devices. In the future, alerts will be forwarded on national threats to life and livelihoods.

The SMS platform was established through a strategic partnership with TSTT and Digicel Trinidad and Tobago. 


To ensure timely delivery of the alert, please confirm the time and location you received the test message: 

or share via the ODPM's Facebook page
