Tomorrow afternoon provincial emergency management organizations will be issuing public test messages through Alert Ready, Canada’s emergency alerting system. Each province will issue one test message to be distributed over television, radio and to compatible wireless devices at 1:55 pm local time tomorrow following an alert tone.
The Alert Ready System has enabled government authorities to deliver emergency alerts to Canadians during threat to life situations over television and radio since 2015 and to compatible wireless devices since April this year. It is important to note that not all Canadians will receive the test alert on their wireless device depending on device compatibility, connection to an LTE network, cell tower coverage, device software and settings.
