Province tests emergency wireless alerts

Alert System

"Alert Ready wireless testing undertaken this week in other provinces and territories showed similar results".

Wireless alerts will initially be for tsunami threats only, but expanding the system to include other hazards and emergencies, such as wildfires, is being considered.

Mobile users in Ontario and Quebec were supposed to receive alerts on their devices Monday as part of a test of the regulator-mandated warning system, which was supposed to be fully in place by April 6.

Notify Red Deer is scheduled fir 9 a.m. and registered users will receive the notification, as well as anyone listed in the City phone book. The test is part of National Emergency Preparedness Week. However, he suggests more needs to be done to refine the system.

"There is a lot of work that has gone into this for a lot of years", he told CTV Edmonton on Wednesday. As British Columbia's largest 911 call-taking centre, we hope this will reduce the number of calls to 911 from people who don't have emergencies, but are looking for information. They don't have the radio on.

Julia Harvie-Shemko, communications and strategic planning director, said Red Deer is fortunate to have three separate emergency alert systems.

Anecdotal reports on social media suggested only some residents of the Prairies, the West Coast and northern Canada received messages.
