Alert Ready Test on May 8, 2019

Update: There will be no test alerts in Ontario & Quebec due to the ongoing flooding situation in these provinces.

 

Hey Community,

 

On May 8, 2019, 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.

Interesting, I only got two alerts.

 

Good news is that the boy and mother were found safe and are back home now.
