RO-ALERT system allows sending Cell Broadcast messages to warn and alert citizens in case of emergency and is used under major circumstances, when people’s life and health condition are endangered, such as extreme weather, ominous floods, terrorist attacks or other situations that are severe threats to communities.

RO-ALERT system is implemented on Romanian territory by the Ministry of Interior, through its General Inspectorate for Emergency Situations (GIES) and the technical support provided by Special Telecommunications Service, consequent to Emergency ordinance no. 72 of October 5th, 2017.

The STS is technically responsible for RO-ALERT implementation, set off and administration, as well as for creating the necessary secure channels, including implementation of security mechanisms for the equipment and RO-ALERT users as well.
