No tópico: SMS vs. SMS-CB no Sistema de alerta a populações

Ontem, 06:34

Resultado das SMS recebidas da ANEPC no dia de hoje nos cartões que tinha nos mais variados telemóveis / smartphones.


Em caso de catástrofe iminente como um Tsunami o Cell Broadcast entregaria o alerta em < 1 minuto.


Em relação às SMS, os resultados falam por si.

Na Quinta-Feira 4 de Setembro a Autoridade Nacional de Emergência e Proteção Civil (ANEPC) enviou 5895608 de SMS nas primeiras 4 horas e 242 mil foram enviadas em inglês para 13 distritos abrangidos pelo alerta vermelho.


Muitos poderão dizer, foi um grande sucesso, há relatórios que indicam o sucesso da entrega das SMS, tenho opinião contrária. Se tivéssemos a utilizar o Cell Broadcast esse alerta teria sido entregue em segundos aos 6 milhões de utilizadores afectados pelo alerta.


Há relatos de pessoas que indicam não ter recebido qualquer SMS estando nas zonas afectadas, mas não se falou nem se fala nesse pormenor.


Imaginemos que teríamos que alertar a População para um Tsunami no litoral de Portugal, com o Cell Broadcast em 4 segundos conseguiríamos entregar o alerta a todos, e com as SMS, quantas horas seriam necessárias?


Como cidadão Português que estou a pagar quase 1 milhão de eur por uma solução de SMS em massa, qual a razão da pressa de se ter adjudicado por ajuste directo uma solução por SMS e não Cell Broadcast?


Foram realizados estudos? Foram contactadas outras empresas? Quais as razões?

Britain plans mass mobile phone alerts to protect public from terrorism, major floods and nuclear attack
The new early warning system for deadly threats will be trialled later this year


Britain is planning to introduce US-style mass mobile phone alerts to protect the public against terrorism, major floods and nuclear attack.


A major new early warning system for deadly threats will be trialled for the first time later this year, the Telegraph has learned.


The technology allows thousands of messages to be sent to every mobile phone in areas deemed at risk. If the pilot project is successful, officials want to roll out the system across the country.


Supporters of so-called ‘cell broadcasting’ claim the message alerts could have saved lives during major incidents including the London Bridge terrorist attack and Grenfell Tower fire. Senior figures have raised concerns, however, that the messages could be hijacked by hackers or malicious foreign powers to induce mass panic.


Backed by the police, the plan is being overseen by the Cabinet Office's Civil Contingencies Secretariat, the body responsible for emergency planning. Major mobile phone operators have helped develop the system for use in the UK, documents show.


Cell broadcasting allows messages to be sent to all mobile phones within a distinct geographical area, and in theory could be used to alert every smartphone user in the country.


The approach is already used widely in other countries including the United States and India. In January 2018, an incoming missile alert plunged residents of Hawaii into panic before it was declared a false alarm. Later it emerged that a junior worker had accidentally pressed the wrong button.


The first major cell broadcasting trial in Britain will be carried out by the Environment Agency later this year, and comes after thousands of people were evacuated from the town of Whalley Bridge in August amid fears that a nearby dam was on the brink of collapse.

A mass warning system using SMS technology was trialled in 2013 but returned “disappointing” results, according to government analysis. Since then homeowners in flood risk areas can sign up to receive weather warnings if they provide phone numbers. The new system would automatically send alerts to every smartphone regardless of whether the user had opted in.


The government has hired the Japanese technology firm Fujitsu to examine how the technology can be rolled out across the country. If the Environment Agency trial is successful, officials want to use the system in future to warn people at risk from life-threatening incidents like radiation leaks or terrorist attacks.


The plan has been championed by Lord Harris of Haringey, who sits on the Joint Committee on the National Security Strategy and first recommended it during a 2016 report on London’s preparedness for terror attacks.


“We should have done this long ago,” Lord Harris told the Telegraph.


“The authorities need to be able to get their message out as quickly and authoritatively as possible, especially in the modern world of social media. People need to be told to keep away from an area, or make certain preparations, and so on.


“If, for example, there had been something available to the fire commander at Grenfell Tower then perhaps people inside could have been informed that the evacuation plan had changed - that they should no longer stay put and escape instead. The same goes for a terrorist attack like London Bridge.”


A working group involving the Cabinet Office and emergency services is understood to be discussing the exact wording of the alerts to ensure they do not create confusion.


One suggested message seen by the Telegraph says “Serious Police Incident - Please Go Indoors And Stay In” before telling the reader to listen to local radio for more information.


After World War II, some sirens were kept in place to alert the public of incoming danger, but these were decommissioned in the 1990s following the end of the Cold War.


A spokesman for the Cabinet Office said: "The UK has robust emergency management arrangements and is designed to be flexible, adaptable and applicable to a range of emergency scenarios.


"These include the capability to warn and inform the public through a range of channels including social and broadcast media platforms and direct alert such as the flood warning system. We continue to keep these arrangements under review."

Segundo notícia de um OCS indica: "SMS da Proteção Civil chegou a 6 milhões de pessoas". "Nas duas primeiras horas, entre as 8h e as 10h, foram entregues com sucesso 80% das mensagens" .


"Às 12h00, 4 horas após o início do processo, o número de mensagens entregues com sucesso foi superior a 90%." Tenho conhecimento de imensas pessoas que não receberam as SMS e que se encontram nas zonas afectadas pelo Alerta Vermelho.


Levaram 4 horas para entregar SMS quando com o Cell Broadcast seria possível entregar essa mesma mensagem a 6 milhões de pessoas em menos de 1 minuto.


É este o sistema de alertas que nos irá alertar em futuras situações de catástrofe / emergência que das vezes que foi utilizado mostrou ter falhas e não servir os propósitos para um sistema de alertas à População em que todos os segundos são cruciais?


Os Partidos com assento Parlamentar não estão disponíveis para falar neste assunto.


Resta a nós cidadãos debater este assunto para que seja implementado em Portugal um sistema de alertas à População resiliente, que funcione e que chegue a todos quando for necessário.
