Over the next 30 days or so, testing of the alert system for southwestern Ontario will begin. I had hoped to be able to run alerts simultaneously for SW Ontario on the same machine that runs the GH-GTA (ie multiple alert systems), but I’m advised by the programmer that that capability is currently on hold in development.

I’ve therefore re-configured another network computer to do this on an independent basis. Recalibration of the scan zones is needed for this as we calibrate sensitivities vs scan areas for this. Occasional test scan alerts may come out to subscribers identified in the SW Ontario area. These alerts will be clearly marked as SW Ontario alerts and as test only. The GH-GTA alert system is live and received alerts identified for the GH-GTA should be noted as valid.
