New Nationwide Emergency Alert System Test – May 9 at 1:55 p.m.

New Nationwide Emergency Alert System

On April 6, the wireless emergency alert system, Alert Ready, was introduced across Canada. Now, if you have a smartphone that meets the criteria, anytime a critical alert is issued you will receive a text to your phone with a ‘shortened’ version of the issued alert. The SaskAlert app will give you access to the longer version of the alert as well as Emergency Advisory Alerts.  All municipal and provincial  residents are encouraged to download the free SaskAlert app.

A province wide test of all alerting platforms – radio, TV, apps, website and text alerting – will happen on May 9 at 1:55 p.m. during Emergency Preparedness Week.  Visit saskalert.ca

Farm Safety

On average, 13 people are killed on Saskatchewan farms each year. Of these fatal injuries, 75% involve machinery such as grain trucks, semis, tractors and combines. Most incidents occur in the farm yard and of all serious injuries that happen, 14% involve youth.  (Statistics by the Saskatchewan Farm Injury Surveillance Program at the University of Saskatchewan.)

The Saskatchewan Safety Council has recently developed an interactive online safety training program for farmers and ranchers, and, it’s free.
