Written by on November 27, 2019

There will be a Canada wide test of the emergency alert system at 1:55 PM this afternoon. You will hear the alert on K1037 at that time as well as your cell phones. The alert system is to warn people of possible disasters such as tornadoes and floods in their region. Lloyd Phillips is the Commissioner of Public Safety in Kahnawake. “It’s extremely important. It’s information that is going to be immediately available to all people including Kahnawakero:non and everybody in Canada on urgent issues such as imminent tornadoes, any type of major disaster, either man made or natural. So, it’s very important to have this information available quickly,” Phillips said.
