I don't know what happened to the entire alert being read out loud so that one knows what it is without going to their phone and accessing the alert. I would like to have the option to, have an an option to use that.

I find the AEA system both helpful, and reassuring. We are given timely, and concise information of developing events in the areas surrounding our home. We take this info, and use it to adapt our plans to best protect our family. AEA is an effective tool we can access, and track threats with as they evolve. I would encourage all Albertans to make AEA a part of their daily security information bundle. Great app.
