OAKVILLE, ON – Alert Ready will be broadcasting a public test of the National Public Alerting System on May 4th, 2022, across Canada.

Canadians will receive a single test message from their provincial or territorial emergency management organization over television, radio, and compatible wireless devices.

The test message will simulate an emergency alert, beginning with the alert tone known as the Canadian Alert Attention Signal.

The message will say that it is only a test and does not require any action.

The B.C. alert will occur at 1:55 P.M. on May 4th, 2022.

In a release, Pelmorex Corp. says this test will provide an opportunity to validate its effectiveness and reliability to ensure it works as intended from start to finish.

They also add that Canadians will not be able to opt-out of these tests or alerts as they can be an imminent threat to life or property.

They say that the Alert Ready system delivered 173 public emergency alerts to Canadians in 2021.
