Did you receive an emergency alert test on your cell phone at 1:55 p.m. on Wednesday, May 9, through the national Alert Ready system?
The Alert Ready system is currently only going to be used for tsunami warnings in B.C. - make sure you are registered for BowENS to be notified when other kinds of disasters or emergencies strike Bowen Island. List all of your phone, cell, text and email addresses so you can receive notifications wherever you may be.
If you are having difficulty registering or have had challenges with the system, please contact our emergency program coordinator.
