5. Alertswiss app
In addition to the sirens, the Alertswiss application allows cantons to inform and alert the population of any major event likely to have consequences for their situation and/or safety.
It provides useful information on ordinary events (traffic jams, demonstrations, etc.), as well as on more serious dangers.
Depending on the nature of the notification, the application also provides information on how to react.
Information and warnings are sent directly to smartphones. The location tool allows messages to be sent directly to the population in the area concerned.
Furthermore, the alertswiss.ch portal provides essential information on disaster and emergency preparedness in Geneva and Switzerland, as well as on how to react.
