The use of location-based services has become widespread in mobile applications, which serve many areas, including maps, searching for nearby services, social media and even entertainments and games have become highly dependent on the location. However, the use of location based services in the area of risk reduction and evacuation of accidents and risks needs more effort to be made, as each of the current location based means has its technical or economic difficulties that makes it difficult to rely on when the danger occurred to alert those nearby and send warning alerts what they should do, especially in developing countries, despite the urgent need for these means, especially in the fight against terrorism. This paper focuses on survey research for current location based services classifications and presents a new proposed to improve the process of delivering important messages and alerts automatically to mobile devices in a particular location related to an event when it occurs by integrating GPS technology with GIS tools, and GIS measuring distance algorithms. The proposed approach could help people receive alerts in a timely and in-location manner. It would be an alternative solution to existing messaging systems such as SMS, CBS and social media applications for use by Governments or a licensed civil society organization at the lowest possible cost. The success rate in the practical experience of the proposed approach was 98.6%.
