Wireless Public Alerting System

Alert Ready is a service designed to deliver critical and potentially life-saving emergency alert messages to Canadians through television, radio, and wireless networks.

Wireless alerts are location-based. SaskTel wireless customers, as well as any other compatible device using the network in the area, may receive emergency alerts.

Not all wireless devices are able to receive messages from Alert Ready. Compatibility with Alert Ready depends on many factors, including the device model and OS software version. To receive alerts, a device must be:

  • A compatible LTE-device. See Alert Ready compatible wireless devices
  • Updated with the latest version of its operating software
  • Connected to an LTE network   
    • Note that if you are making a voice call over 4G at the time the alert is issued, your device is connected to 4G, not LTE, at that time.
