CFAR Flin Flon, CJAR The Pas and CHTM Thompson have joined radio stations across the country in becoming part of a national public emergency alert system called Alert Ready. Equipment has been installed at the stations that will bring you messages to warn of amber alerts, tornadoes, floods, forest fires, water contamination and industrial disasters. Only alerts that represent an imminent or unexpected threat to life will be broadcast based on criteria developed by government officials.
The alert begins with an attention signal interrupting current programming followed by a description of the potential threat.
More information on the type of alerts, links to provincial emergency preparedness resources and videos to help you prepare for emergencies is available on their website www.AlertReady.ca.
