“The Alberta Emergency Alert system is tested twice a year, during spring and fall. This is not just a test of the emergency alerting system, it’s an opportunity for all of us to test our own readiness,” reads Alberta’s website.
Alberta’s next alert ready test is scheduled to take place on November 15th, 2023. To find out the next alert ready test in your province, check out the testing schedule here.
