Did you receive Wednesday's test emergency alert?

Poll: did you get the alert?

Smartphones, radios and televisions will be sounded off a signal Wednesday across B.C.

The biannual Alert Ready system, a national emergency broadcast test, took place Wednesday (May 5) at 1:55 p.m.

The last test was conducted in November 2020; one was scheduled for May 2020, but was cancelled resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
