The IT-Alert system sends alert messages to all mobile phones connected to a mobile network in case of emergency.

During the testing phase, IT-Alert messages will be sent to mobile phones in the regions of Lombardy, Molise and Basilicatabut the system will soon be available nationwide.

The first IT-Alert message will contain an invitation to connect to the website and answer a questionnaire. This survey will allow the Civil Protection Department to collect feedback from users in order to improve the service. The invitation to complete the questionnaire will also be addressed to those who will not receive any notification, since in some areas without coverage the message may not be delivered.
