Manitobans are being reminded that the National Public Alerting System, Alert Ready is scheduled to issue an emergency test tomorrow.

The test message is scheduled to appear on multiple communication channels tomorrow, May 5th at 1:55 p.m.

Manitoba Infrastructure’s Emergency Measures Organization says the testing of all components is an important and necessary part of any public alerting system.

The test alert will be distributed on TV, radio, and wireless devices, but not all Manitobans will receive the test alert on their mobile devices.
