Emergency Test Alert Today: Emergency Preparedness Week

Today at 11:55 a.m., the National Public Alerting System will issue a test message to Alberta through TV, Radio, and directly to compatible and connected smartphones.
During the test, an alert sound will go off with a message to the cellphone user confirming there is no need for concern. The test is not just a test of the National Alerting system. It is an opportunity for all of us to test our own readiness to respond.
When you receive the alert, take a moment to reflect on how prepared you would have been if that alert were real. Tonight, go home and ask your household about where they were when the alert went off and how ready they would have been.
Having a conversation about preparedness is one step to becoming more prepared. Learn how you can use the emergency alert to become more prepared.
