Leeds Alert

Leeds City Council and West Yorkshire Police operate a warning and informing system, known as Leeds Alert

This system is free and allows West Yorkshire Police and Leeds City Council to send out emergency alert messages to businesses registered with the scheme.  Leeds Alert is there to provide you with the information you will need to help prepare you, your colleagues and your place of work for emergencies and disruptive events.   

  • Messages can be received on pagers and mobile phones as an SMS text message or email, and also as a text-to-voice message on a landline telephone. 
  • Emails are used to alert those registered about potential disruption in the city.
  • The Leeds Alert text messages are only be used in emergency situations and will provide details of the incident and where necessary, may include instructions on how message recipients should respond to the incident.
  • Messages can be sent to every registered person, or can be targeted at specific groups, such as all businesses in a particular area/postcode, or a particular type of organisation as appropriate.

Up to four people from an organisation can register and receive messages free of charge. These people should be sufficiently senior within the organisation to be able to authorise responses to the Alert messages such as building evacuation, and be able to pass the message on to the rest of their staff.

Our web pages provide supporting information that, together with Leeds Alert, can help you plan and be ready for emergencies.
