Message to be sent at 1:55 pm November 25th

Manitoba Infrastructure's 'Emergency Measures Organization' says a test alert will be issued across the province November 25th through the Alert Ready National Public Alerting System. It's scheduled for 1:55 pm.

Alert Ready disseminates emergency alerts to television and radio broadcast distributors, to compatible wireless devices connected to LTE cellular networks through wireless public alerting and to other last mile distributors including internet services. 

Some Manitobans may not receive the test alert on their wireless device for a variety of reasons including device compatibility, availability of an LTE network, cell tower coverage and individual device software and settings.
