National Public Alerting System Testing

Federal, provincial, and territorial governments, in collaboration with industry partners, launched the National Public Alerting System (NPAS) in 2018, known as the “Alert Ready” system.

On November 17 at 1:55 p.m., the NPAS will be tested, sending alerts across TV, radio, wireless, websites, social media, the Alberta Emergency Alert (AEA) mobile app and directly to Albertans via compatible smart phones. This is a nation-wide test of the alerting system. To learn more about the Alberta Emergency Alert Test and “Alert Ready” click on these websites: and
