The purpose of the Emergency Alert App is to alert users of any environmental crisis, accidents, criminal activities, etc. The app can also be used for any critical alerts like, weather alerts (e.g., tornadoes, floods, fire, etc.), quarantines, etc.
The Emergency Alert App is not part of your playlist. It will only display when an emergency happens.
