Wireless Emergency Alert Test This Week

If you hear a a different ring tone coming from your cell phone this week, no need to panic.  It’s only a test.

Canada’s public emergency alert system, Alert Ready, will be sending push notifications to any wireless device connected to an LTE network.  Radio and television networks will also be taking part in the test.

If your ring tone is on you will hear an ambulance siren or vibrate for eight seconds.  The test for Manitoba residents is scheduled for Wednesday, May 9th at 1:55pm.

The Alert Ready system sends out warnings to communicate close safety threats such as floods, tornadoes, Amber Alerts or terrorist threats.
