Emer­gency alert­ing sys­tem to be tested on Wed­nes­day NEW BRUNSWICK — Alert Ready, the na­tional emer­gency alert sys­tem, will be tested on Wed­nes­day evening, Sept. 20, by me­dia broad­cast­ers in New Brunswick. The sys­tem is de­signed to de­liver crit­i­cal and po­ten­tially life-sav­ing alerts to Cana­di­ans through tele­vi­sion and ra­dio. It is tested pe­ri­od­i­cally.

Alert Ready was de­vel­oped na­tion­ally in part­ner­ship with fed­eral, pro­vin­cial and ter­ri­to­rial emer­gency man­age­ment of­fi­cials, En­vi­ron­ment Canada and the broad­cast in­dus­try to en­hance emer­gency pre­pared­ness and re­sponse in times of cri­sis. The test will take place on tele­vi­sion and ra­dio. Fol­low­ing an audi­ble alarm, the fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion will be pre­sented by tele­vi­sion on a red back­ground or broad­cast by ra­dio: “This is a test of the Na­tional

Pub­lic Alert­ing Sys­tem is­sued by the New Brunswick Emer­gency Mea­sures Or­ga­ni­za­tion. This is only a test. If this had been an ac­tual emer­gency or threat, you would now hear in­struc­tions that would as­sist you to protect you and your fam­ily. This is a test only, no ac­tion is re­quired.”
