Alert Ready is a service designed to deliver critical and potentially life-saving emergency alert messages to Canadians. The Alert Ready system was developed in partnership with federal, provincial, and territorial emergency management officials, Pelmorex Weather Networks (Television) Inc., the broadcast industry, and wireless service providers to ensure you receive emergency alerts immediately and know when to take action to keep you and your family safe.
It is the role of the relevant provincial, territorial and federal authorities to determine the content of an alert, the area in which it is distributed and its timing. All wireless service providers have the capability to distribute emergency alerts.
To see if your device will receive these messages and its required settings, please check the list of compatible devices. Please note that more devices will be added shortly.
Nationwide test alerts will be sent to compatible devices to ensure performance accuracy. To find out the test schedule for your province, please visit AlertReady.ca.
