Emergency Alert 3 Times in 15 Minutes (Saskatchewan)

So got this Amber Alert 3 times in a 15 minute span. Seems in Saskatchewan it's not good enough to send it out once. I was sleeping the first time and it almost gave me a heart attack. Tried to get back to seep and off it went again as soon as I closed my eyes. So I got up went to the bathroom and it went off a third time.

So here I am scrambled after a rough night of not being able to sleep well. I do understand this is very important and a child's life may depend on it. But we don't need it to happen 3 times in 15 minutes, I noticed it the first time.

To top it off this is from Saskatoon and I'm in Moose Jaw 230 KM away. The system is set up to notify all of Saskatchewan and there is apparently no way to select just the city in question.

To be honest I thought it was the fire alarm when I first woke and then realized the sound was coming from my phone.

The triple alert seems to be what happens with our emergency system. They keep saying it's going to be fixed, but a couple years later, it's still doing it.

You will be pleased to hear, the child was found safe not long after the alert was sent out. This shows the effectiveness of the system.

This all being said, I'm a fan of the idea of being able to opt out of getting alerts. I honestly do not remember one single alert for my city. I don't need to know there is a storm in a city 2.5 hours drive away. I also don't desire to get them even if it is my city. I'm basically shut away in my apartment most of my life so there is little I could do anyway.

    1. I don't turn it off in case I need to use it in the night for an emergency.
