National Test of Alert Ready to Take Place Today


This morning at 10:55 a.m. (NST) and 10:25 a.m. in most of Labrador (AST) there will be a public test message issued through Alert Ready, the national emergency alerting system.


Newfoundland and Labrador will issue one test message to be distributed over television, radio and to compatible wireless devices.


The system enables designated government authorities to rapidly warn the public of imminent or unfolding threats to life.


There may be a number of reasons why a device may not receive the alert including device compatibility, network connection, cell tower coverage, device software, and settings.
