Emergency Alert testing today

Emergency Alert testing today

May 07, 2018


Today is the day that a new emergency signal is being tested across Canada. At 1:55 p.m. on Monday, May 7, the Emergency Ready System will send out an audio and visual test signal. Today's test signal will appear on radio, television and wireless devices (including cell phones).

This is a national alert system which advises citizens in case there is an emergency involving natural disasters, such as fire, biological, or environmental disasters, or terrorist emergencies. Today is a test only.
