In less than an hour, Ontario will send public-proof messages through Alert Ready using the Canadian Emergency Alert System.
The test message will be distributed on TV, radio and compatible wireless devices at 1:55 p.m. in the place.
The first test took place in the Emergency Emergency Week 2018.
The Alert Ready system aims at sending government emergency alert alerts to residents of Ontario. They release fires, natural disasters, dangerous substances, air quality, terrorist threats, and civilian emergencies. These alerts have been delivered via radio and television since 2015 and compatible wireless devices since April 2018.
Not all shipowners will receive a test alert on wireless devices, such as device compatibility, LTE network, cell coverage, device and software settings.
The Canadian radio and television telecommunications commission has set a goal for 50% of new devices available in Canada to be compatible with Alert Ready. This target will reach 100 percent in April 2019.
