Emergency population warning

In the event of an emergency situation at a Seveso establishment, the government will notify the resident population through various channels:

  • BE-Alert. 
  • Radio vans from the police, driving around the streets.
  • Social media (e.g. CrisiscenterBE)
  • Radio and TV


BE-Alert is an alarm system that allows the government to alert you in an emergency situation, via text message, telephone or e-mail. Register on BE-Alert to receive a message.

The best way to protect yourself

In case of an industrial accident, your first reaction must be to go inside and listen to the media. In an emergency situation, the authorities will inform the population, particularly through the media.
