Get ready, Canada: Another test of emergency public alert system is coming to a screen or device near you


Canadians across the country, except for those living in Nunavut, can expect to have their Wednesday interrupted by an emergency public alert that will be broadcast on television and radio and sent to compatible mobile devices as part of a nationwide test of the system. The exact time of the test will vary depending on the province or territory, according to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC). The alerts are intended to warn Canadians of potentially life-threatening situations. “The messages will be identified as test alerts and will not require Canadians to take action,” the CRTC said in a statement issued Tuesday.
