Parents asked to prepare students for the Wireless Public Alert System test

Emergency Alert Test Takes Place Monday

The CRTC continued to say that "the officials responsible for these tests at Emergency management organizations and at Pelmorex are looking into it and we are continuing to monitor the situation".

In Quebec, it was found the test failed due to an extra space put in the code that triggers the alert.

The system is still scheduled for the rest of the country this week, with tests planned for BC and AB on Wednesday afternoon.

The test in Ontario was carried out at 1:55 p.m., and while some mobile phone users reported having received an alert, others said their phone didn't make a peep.

Early voting for primary election begins
Eden Feldstein, of Sylvania Township, drove to his designated polling location on his lunch break to ensure he cast his ballot. Braun's win might mean more for how Republicans try to win in primaries the rest of this year than Blankenship's loss.


The alert system was created to broadcast critical and potentially life-saving alerts to Canadians through television and radio, as a means to to ensure people receive alerts immediately and know when to take action to stay safe.

Depending on the settings, users with compatible devices - such as smartphones and tablets connected to an LTE network - were supposed to hear a tone similar to an ambulance alarm or feel a vibration for eight seconds starting at 9:55 a.m. ET in Quebec.

Canadians may be required to acknowledge receipt of the emergency alert in order to allow for their wireless device to resume normal functioning.

The test alert will emit a loud noise, that may startle students.

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Seattle Mariners
So over last two starts , Paxton has allowed five hits and zero runs over 16 innings while walking four and striking out 23. He also hit the go-ahead two-run shot in the Mariners' eventual extra-innings win over the Angels on Saturday.


But Blanchet said those alerts have been in place for app users since 2015, and that Monday's wireless testing is different.

In Canada, warnings about emergencies are not text or SMS messages, and distributed using the so-called technology of cell broadcast.

They had a similar test in Quebec earlier that day.

As for the wireless alerts test in Ontario, Alert Ready said "We understand that some wireless users did not receive the test alert".
