Alberta Emergency Alert Test

Today at 1:55 p.m., the wireless public alerting system sent out a test alert across Alberta. During the test, an alert a sound went off with a message to the cellphone user confirming there is no need for concern. The test was not just a test of the Alberta Emergency Alert system. It is an opportunity for all of us to test our own readiness to respond.

When you received the alert, did you take a moment to reflect on how prepared you would have been if that alert were real. Start a conversation with 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.
