Province-wide Mobile Phone Alert Test Wednesday

Mobile phones across the Victoria region will buzz and display alert messages Wednesday afternoon. It's a planned test of the nation-wide emergency notification system.

These tests will help government and public officials ensure that mobile devices are capable of warning you of an emergency. During the test your mobile device will buzz or sound a tone and will display a notification message. On many devices this message will need to be dismissed before you are able to resume regular operation of your device. 

The test will occur at 1:55 p.m.

Additional test alerts will be issued by radio and television.

When you receive the alert test, there is no need for concern or further action on your part.

There’s no need to call 9-1-1 or our non-emergency number.
