On December 8, 2022, the Warntag (translation: warning day) will take place, during which a test warning message will be activated nationwide from 11:00 a.m. by participating authorities and emergency forces via various warning media (e.g. radio, television and warning apps). This is the first time that cell broadcast is used, in which a message is sent directly to a cell phone.
