The big emergency alert test happenened—and yes–there were “glitches.” And that was in Alberta, Saskatchewan AND Manitoba. Part of the reason is that not ALL smart phones and other mobile devices are compatible—so those werent unexpected.
-We decided to see how well it worked among employees here at the station—and while not everyone took part in the survey—-23 people say they got the alert—while 8 did not. Who did and who did NOT–depended on the type of phone or mobile device.
One person who shall remain nameless says he knew the alarm was coming—-but he still needed to find a new pair of shorts afterwards.
