Kirklees Emergency Alert is a free text message alerting system for Kirklees Businesses, operated by Kirklees Council's Emergency Planning Team.

The district of Kirklees has been divided up into nine zones. In an emergency, businesses signed up to the service will receive a free text message. The message will contain information about the emergency and recommended actions businesses should take to help keep their staff, customers and buildings safe.

Who can sign up

Businesses located within Kirklees.

We recommend those who sign up are in a position of authority and able to make organisational decisions, cascading information to others in their business as appropriate.

Businesses who signed up to the pilot do not need to sign up again.
