Haifa residents to get emergency texts during Home Front test tomorrow

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

The military’s Home Front Command will conduct a test of a cell broadcast system in the Haifa area tomorrow.

During a drill with other emergency services, the military will issue a text message at 12:05 p.m. to all cell phones in a designated area in the city.

The system will cause an alert to pop up on phones and include text with various simulated instructions for an emergency, the Israel Defense Forces says.
