    Wireless Public Alerting Information

    Wireless Public Alerting is an add-on tool offered through CANALERT by the federal government. It is used to enhance all the existing public alerting systems. Every community that has access to Alberta Emergency Alert will also now have access to Wireless Public Alerting.  AEMA advises that whenever their system is used to issue a Critical Alert, the audible message that already goes out via TV & radio, will now automatically go out via the cellular network to any smartphone that’s powered on in the area of the emergency. Wireless Public Alerts will not automatically be generated for Information Alerts.

    We encourage all Greenview residents to download the AEMA Emergency Alert App at http://www.aema.alberta.ca/alberta-emergency-alert

    For FAQ’s regarding the CANALERT Wireless Public Alert system and today’s test, please go to the following link: http://www.emergencyalert.alberta.ca/content/about/wireless.html

    Emergency Preparedness Week

    May 6 to 12 is Emergency Preparedness Week. Are you ready? Emergencies can happen at any time of year. All households should have a 72 hour emergency kit to help their families stay safe until emergency responders can reach them. Emergency kit contents should be checked on an annual basis to confirm perishable items haven’t expired and ensure they still meet your family’s needs. For details on what to include and special considerations for your vehicle and pets go to http://www.aema.alberta.ca/emergency-preparedness-week
