Canadian Wireless Emergency Alert Test on Wednesday May 8

At 1:55 p.m. Wednesday May 8, 2019, if your cell phone happens to be roaming on a Canadian network you may receive a test message of the Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) system.

The test is likely to say “This is a TEST of the British Columbia Emergency Alerting System, issued by Emergency Management British Columbia.”

This is just a test, no cause for concern, and is similar to tests done periodically of the system on the U.S. side of the border.
