How is this all possible?

Smart Communications has invested in cell broadcast technology which allows Smart’s users within a specified location to receive timely and accurate warnings from authorized government sources in times of calamities or threats. During emergencies or calamities, mobile users should receive an emergency alert – a very loud siren-like sound will go off with a corresponding message about the emergency flashed onscreen.

Smart Communications has made it possible for agencies like Philippine Institute of Volcanic and Seismology (PHILVOLCS), the Natural Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC), as well as the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) to send free warning alerts straight to Smart users’ mobile phones in accordance to RA No 10649 of 2014 aka the Free Mobile Disaster Alerts Act.
