On Wednesday November 25, at 01:55 PM BC’s wireless alerting system will be conducted as part of the national Alert Ready system to improve public safety in the event of an emergency.
During the test, an alert will be broadcast on radio and television stations, as well as on compatible wireless devices. The test message will read: “This is a TEST of the British Columbia Emergency Alerting System, issued by Emergency Management British Columbia. 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 ONLY a TEST, no action is required.”
