Today's disasters are getting more and more severe, including floods, fires, storms, causing massive damage to private and public property. Including the loss of important people.
Wouldn't it be better if we were aware of the arrival of all disasters before they occurred through SMS alerts in order to be prepared to deal with and resolve the situation with the least impact?
Although the SMS alarm is not available in all countries around the world. But many disaster-prone countries have realized the importance of this SMS and have started to develop it, until it comes to actual use.
Thailand itself has begun to develop a warning SMS to alert Thai people of serious incidents before they occur so that they can be prepared in the right way.
According to the Thai Meteorological Department has cooperated with major mobile phone network operators in the country, including the National Telecommunications Company (NT), DTAC TriNet Company Limited (dtac), True Corporation Public Company Limited (TRUE) and Advanced In Four Service Public Company Limited has started developing SMS alerts for people in the country.
Since 2020 - 2022, the mobile phone network has sent a total of 4 warning SMSs.
In addition to Thailand, there are SMS alarms in other countries such as Japan, America, Australia, the Netherlands, Italy, Lithuania, Greece, Romania, etc.
According to the above content, every continent of the world has experienced the same disaster. Therefore, the invention and development of SMS to warn people in their own countries.
Due to the relatively large area of Europe, having SMS alarms is of different importance according to the laws of that country. which have different abbreviations used instead, such as
The Council of the European Union has agreed to be a Supervised country. Every member country needs to have an SMS alert or a public alert system to protect their own people. Most of the time, it's a warning that can cause damage to property and life.
In the United States, the emphasis is placed on warnings against disasters that may cause damage to the property and lives of the population of his country through the SMS alert system, which is equivalent to our national Meteorological Department. In addition to sending warning messages US warning system Evacuation orders can also be sent to citizens at both national and national levels. Messages are sent directly from the president to the people.
Another interesting US alert system is Amber Alert, a system that tracks and rescues missing children in real time for the first 24 hours, when children are most safe and survivable. This system can simulate real situations including important information. Sent to all citizens to help each other to monitor.
When it comes to the continent of Australia We will think of beautiful nature and interesting countries that attract many tourists. But Australia is a continent prone to severe bushfires. An SMS or text message alert system, known as Emergency Alert Australia, has been used most recently in bushfire events. Send a voice message to a landline number. and sent in the form of a text message to the mobile phones of the population in an area that was assessed to be at risk.
Back to Asia, when talking about Asia, I would like to give an example of the warning system of a country of technology like Japan.
Japan is considered to be a country that is well prepared for natural disasters with its SMS Alert System J-Alert, a system that utilizes satellites and equipment installed throughout the country to publish Disaster alerts to people in the country to avoid damage. and evacuate people in a timely manner
Many times natural disasters kill a lot of people in each country around the world. If we are aware of events before they happen Will help reduce a lot of damage Having an alarm SMS that alerts us in every dire situation. It is one of the technologies that should be continuously developed for the safety of people in the country. And it's a good start for you as well.
