Don’t be alarmed—be alert ready. If you live in Alberta, you may receive an emergency alert test to your mobile device this Wednesday May 9 at 1:55 pm MT.
Curious whether your device will start buzzing this Wednesday? To receive the alert, your device must be:
- Compatible with LTE and WPA, and
- Connected to an LTE cellular network.
Determine your device’s compatibility for Alert Ready emergency alert testing.
When the test runs, depending on your device’s settings, it might:
- Display an alert
- Make an alarming tone similar to an ambulance alarm
Remember, this is just a test. Emergency management officials are trialing wireless notifications as a part of the national public alert system to make sure all Canadians receive critical emergency alerts when needed. Learn more about Alert Ready.
This event is a part of Emergency Preparedness Week nationwide. “Be Emergency Ready” with information and tools from the Government of Canada.
