#AlertReady is a wireless public alerting system developed in partnership with the Federal, Provincial and Territorial emergency management officials, Environment and Climate Change The Weather Network and the broadcasting industry. It is designed to deliver critical and potentially life-saving alerts to Canadians about emergency situations including but not limited to natural disasters, environmental issues, and civil emergencies.
Effective today, emergency alert messages are now able to be sent directly to compatible smartphones. These notifications are free of charge and you can’t opt out. To check your smartphone’s compatibility and to learn more, visit www.alertready.ca.
