I'm curious how one can find out about urgent emergency alerts without a smartphone? Like the tsunami alert in the early hours of this morning. Looking at the census data from 2016, more than 20% of people in BC don't have a smartphone, so I was wondering what other alerts are in place? Are there sirens or other audio alerts for people? Is there an auto-phone system we can register with? I can usually hear fog horns and other loud noises like sirens. We're fairly close to a military space (firing range) which also has a lovely loud siren. But I heard nothing last night. This makes me worried.
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars. Tiny ad:
