Life Threatening Alerts to Wireless Devices

Effective April 6, the National Public Alerting system where EMOs across the country will now be able to push life threatening alerts will be active on all compatible wireless devices. On May 9th at 1:55 p.m. PEI EMO will be conducting a live test of the system. The system does not allow cellphone users/owners to opt out of the alerts and only newer compatible devices will receive the alerts. Attached here is a brief outline of the system. Visit the website for additional information http://www.alertready.ca

Many students and school staff that carry a compatible wireless device will receive this test message on May 9th. Individuals with their devices on silent will not hear the alert sound however their phone will vibrate and they will receive a text like message with a message to the effect of…”This is only a test. This is a scheduled test of the Public Alerting System from Prince Edward Island’s Emergency Measures Organization. If this had been an actual emergency or threat, you would receive instructions that would assist you to protect you and your family. This is only a test. No Action is required.”
