Manitobans To Expect An Alert Ready Test Tomorrow

Tomorrow at 1:55 p.m. CDT, Manitobans will receive a test alert through TV, radio, and compatible wireless devices.

This is part of Manitoa Transportional and Infrastructure’s Emergency Measures Organization as they issue an emergency alert test message over multiple communications channels for the National Public Alerting System, Alert Ready. Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure’s Emergency Measures Organization says testing all components is an important and necessary part of any public altering system. It provides an opportunity to validate and improve the end-to-end performance and reliability of the system to ensure it operates as intended on TV, radio and compatible wireless devices. Test alerts also educate the public on what an emergency alert will look and sound like in the event of a life-threatening situation.

Officially launched on March 31, 2015, the Alert Ready system is Canada’s national emergency alert system to alert Canadians of potentially life-threatening events. In Manitoba, the alert can be for Manitoba Emergency Management Organization (EMO) and Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) issued weather alerts and alerts based on information from Government of Manitoba agencies and local authorities.

It could be for various reasons if your devices don’t receive the alert, including device compatibility, connection to an LTE network, cell tower coverage, and device software and settings.
