Alert Ready Test

Alert Ready is a Canada-wide system that allows government officials in each province and territory to issue public safety alerts through major television and radio broadcasters, as well as compatible wireless devices. This system is only used during large-scale disasters or emergencies where loss of life is possible or imminent.

Emergency Management BC conducts a test of the Alert Ready system twice per year.

During the test, the public will hear this alert tone, along with the message below, on radio and TV. They can also hear or see the message on radio, TV and compatible wireless devices. If your device is configured to receive a vibration or other alert, rather than a tone, you will receive the test warning that way.
