The Manitoba government will be testing its Alert Ready system tomorrow afternoon. This means that TVs, radios, and wireless devices across the province will get an emergency at 1:55 p.m.

Alert Ready is the National Public Alerting System, which is used for anything from Amber Alerts to Natural Disaster Warnings. The test is to ensure the system is working properly, and identify any areas that need improvement.

However, not all devices in the province will get the alert. This can occur for a variety of reasons including device compatibility, connection to an LTE network, cell tower coverage, and device software and settings.
