June 3, 2023 – The system for early warning and crisis management (Croatian SRUUK) is currently being tested for the first time in real conditions. All users of domestic mobile networks, as well as those in roaming will receive a text message with the warning.
As 24Sata writes, the Croatian Civil Protection introduced SRUUK with the aim of timely notification of a crisis situation for all residents and visitors of Croatia. It will also provide instructions for behaviour in a threatened area via mobile phones and other tools of modern technology.
HT, A1 and Telemach are the networks which will be sending the test messages. The message from the HR112ALERT sender will contain the following content. “Dear Sir/Madam, you have received a TEST message from the Civil Protection System for early warning and alerting. Do not reply to the message. More at the link: LINK”.
The system testing began at 9 a.m. with messages to mobile phone users in the area of Vukovar-Srijem County. It continued at 10 a.m. for users from the Varaždin, Međimurje, Bjelovar-Bilogora, Koprivnica-Križevci and Krapina-Zagorje counties. Following that, at 10:30 users from Zadar, Split-Dalmatia, Šibenik-Knin and Dubrovnik-Neretva counties should have received their messages.

Moreover, users from the Požega-Slavonia, Osijek-Baranja, Virovitica-Podravska and Brod-Posavina counties will receive a text message at 11 a.m. Half an hour later, the testing will occur in the Sisak-Moslavina, Zagreb and Karlovac counties.
Furthermore, for the citizens of Zagreb, the messages will arrive at noon. On the other hand, the testing will end at 1 pm. The final messages will arrive to mobile phone users from the Istria, Primorje-Gorski Kotar and Lika-Senj counties, according to Civil Protection.
They add that due to SRUUK testing this Saturday, they will not carry out the regular monthly test of the functionality of sirens and warning systems using the “end of danger” signal sound.
