On April 19, the City of Lloydminster will conduct an annual city-wide test of its Emergency Alert System, which will include phone calls to numbers listed in the White Pages and Yellow Pages.
Residents will receive a phone call with a pre-recorded message and will be asked to press 1 to hear the complete message. No further action is required.
“Regular testing of our Emergency Alert Notification System ensures we are prepared to communicate with residents in the event of natural disasters or other emergency situations,” said Don Stang, Director of Community Services. “We thank residents for their support and cooperation with our upcoming system test on April 19, 2017.”
Residents are also encouraged to register online at www.lloydminster.ca/EmergencyAlert to receive updates and information via cell, text or email. Those already registered to receive Emergency Alerts may receive an additional test notification on April 19 .
On the day of the Emergency Alert test exercise, questions or concerns about the Emergency Alert System test should be directed to 780-875-6184 ext. 7500.
Annual city-wide testing is best-practice to:
• Make improvements to the system
• Increase public awareness so residents will be prepared to respond appropriately in a real emergency situation
• Test and ensure the system’s capacity is resilient for notifying all residents when time matters most
