At 1:55 PM, the Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency (SPSA) will conduct a test of the SaskAlert system. The November 15 alert was announced on Tuesday morning by the Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency in a government release.
You likely won't be able to miss the alarm with television, radio, compatible mobile devices and the SaskAlert app all set to receive it. The release shares SaskAlert is an important service that provides critical information on emergencies in real time, allowing Saskatchewan people to take action to protect themselves and their community.
"SaskAlert is tested twice a year to strengthen public safety in times of an emergency or disaster," SPSA President and Fire Commissioner Marlo Pritchard said. "These tests ensure that urgent and lifesaving warnings are distributed to the public by emergency management officials, including the SPSA, as quickly and efficiently as possible."
Make sure the app is downloaded, compatible, and up to date on software by checking your mobile service provider's website.
