Reminder - #AlertReady!


We would like to remind families that a test of the #AlertReady system will occur across Alberta tomorrow, Wednesday, May 9, at 1:55pm.

This new system can send alerts to the majority of smartphones across Canada and may override user settings such as silent mode. If your child has a smartphone device please speak with them about this upcoming system test.

This system is not used by Westwind School Division to communicate with parents but is a wireless public alerting system developed by Federal and Provincial emergency management, environment, and broadcasting officials.

It is designed to deliver critical and potentially life-saving alerts to Canadians about emergency situations including but not limited to natural disasters, environmental issues, and civil emergencies.
