Alert Ready Test on May 5, 2021

Hey Community,

 

On May 5, 2021, provincial and territorial governments will be conducting another test of the Alert Ready system. Alert Ready is designed to deliver critical and potentially life-saving alerts to Canadians. Test alerts educate Canadians on what an emergency alert will look and sound like in the event of a life-threatening situation.

 

The test alert will be distributed on TV, Radio and wireless. However, not all Canadians will receive the test alert on their mobile device. This may occur for a variety of reasons; device compatibility, connection to an LTE network, cell tower coverage and device software and settings.

 

To learn more about the Alert Ready service, what devices are supported, and the test schedule for your province or territory, visit alertready.ca.

I know that there is an alert ready test scheduled for May 5th as found on announcements in the community.

 

But i found news (link here https://mobilesyrup.com/2021/04/29/alert-ready-issuing-test-emergency-alerts-on-may-5-in-select-regi... )

That the Ontario Alert Ready test is cancelled, is this true???

 

@Asher2 

I think you have answered your own question according to the article

It's good to see the linked site showing the correct information. Too often, I have seen news articles (and sometimes even cell phone carriers) incorrectly state that data needs to be enabled when it actually doesn't.

I just received an alert from Alberta about the new COVID-19 restrictions in Alberta.

 

 

Stay positive, Test negative.  Have a better and better days!
