ALERT READY EMERGENCY ALERT SYSTEM TEST – 1:55pm MDT, WEDNESDAY, MAY 9, 2019

Alert Ready is Canada’s emergency alerting system. Alert Ready delivers critical and potentially life-saving alerts to Canadians through television, radio and LTE-connected and compatible wireless devices.

A test of the Alert Ready Emergency Alert System is scheduled to take place today, May 8, 2019, at 1:55pm.

It is important to note that not all Canadians will receive the test alert on their wireless device. This may occur for a variety of reasons, including device compatibility, connection to an LTE network, cell tower coverage, device software and settings.
