BC is conducting another test of the emergency alert system on your wireless devices to improve public safety in the event of an emergency.
The test is this Wednesday at 1:55 pm after last year's test was cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you want to make sure you'll receive such an alert, your devices need to be on and can't be on do-not-disturb or airplane mode.
The alert will also be broadcast on radio and TV.
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.
