Another Emergency Alert Test Coming To TV, Radios & Phones This Week

Get ready for that annoying tone to go off on your TV, your radio and that phone in your pocket. The semi-annual test of the emergency alert system will sound the claxon across Ontario on Wednesday, May 10th at 12:55 PM. It's part of a requirement to make sure everything is working in advance of the real thing. 

The next one won't happen until the fall: Nov. 15th, also a Wednesday.

If you're reading this from another province, you can find the full list of when it will hit your media at the link below.
