Civil Protection Agency and local councils planning mass message service


From next year Portugal’s National Civil Protection Agency along with local councils are to be able to send out mass messages to populations at risk of serious public health issues, accidents or natural catastrophes such as fires or storms.

A new bill has been passed for the creation of a warning and monitoring system which will work on a national, regional, sub-regional and municipal level.

The bill said fixed and mobile communication operators have the duty to collaborate in the event of emergencies.
