The Alberta Government will be conducting an Emergency Alert Test tomorrow (March 1). We can expect the alert to be distributed over television, radio, websites, and social media at 1:55PM.  

This year, the provincial government is conducting the test to coincide with the beginning of wildfire season. 

“Tests help us fix any system issues to ensure alerts work when we need them. Tests also provide a valuable opportunity for Albertans to consider their own readiness to respond to an unexpected event like a wildfir,” said Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Services, Mike Ellis.  

Albertans are encouraged to think about how they can be prepared for an emergency. To learn more click here.
