The provincial government has proclaimed this week as Emergency Preparedness Week, and one of the actions as part of that is a SaskAlert test tomorrow (Wed, May8th). A test of the provincial emergency alert system is scheduled for 11:55 a.m., and will be distributed through SaskAlert via the federal public alerting system Alert Ready. It will be on radio, television, compatible electronic devices and through the SaskAlert app.

Testing is done to ensure that in times of an emergency or disaster, urgent warnings can be distributed quickly. A news release from the province encourages everyone to understand the possible dangers where they live and work and learn what actions you can take to protect yourselves and your loved ones.
