The whole point of testing the system is to make sure all of its components work before an actual emergency, Alert Ready said Tuesday in a statement.

Phones in Medicine Hat and Saskatchewan should have received an emergency alert notification on their phone Wednesday afternoon.

The new National Public Alerting System, publicly branded as Alert Ready, was set to perform a test emergency alert to mobile devices across Canada but it seems like many missed the alert.

Wednesday's is not the first test of emergency alerts, and so far, the system has not worked as planned.

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission ordered wireless providers to implement the system to distribute warnings of imminent safety threats, such as tornadoes, floods, Amber Alerts or terrorism. Alert Ready said, depending on the device and circumstances, the alert tone may override user settings.
