Highly Recommend ☆ but Needs Help Manual ★This is a very useful app 2 have on ur ph/tab device!?! Just 2 know what's happening anywhere in AB, in case u have loved ones traveling/camping or out of touch w/realities?!? ☆It Just Gives U That Heads up B4 News Media hears it!?! ★♥141031 --- This apps pretty good as most alerts did not affect me directly, it did help a relative who just happened 2B on the ph w/my wife, when their pwr went out!?! I got the alert about a pwr grid that was experiencing problems & they were in that grid!?! ☆I grabbed the ph ext & filled them in on the problems w/their pwr grid!?! ☆3 days later, they ph us to say that they were the only ones of their 7 neighbors, that knew why no pwr for 2 days!?! ☆The app just paid for itself ~ well it was free but still, it's worth it, IMHO!?! ☺ LOL

Neil Barker

Great app Thanks for this app - great for people living near recurring flood zones.

Nikki Chan

Great idea! With all the crazy weather lately, this is a great idea!

Cameron Prockiw

Timely alerts Easy to setup and runs in the background. A must have for all Albertans.

Tracy Hutchison

Such a great idea!

Iron Horseman

Marty Mullen Awesome application

Leah M

Great app. Share it with friends. Good for everyone to have on their device.

Austinmon Mciver

Handy app! Its great to be prepared

Shawn Marianovits

Great idea On the app

Steve Toporowsky

Curious Is this even done by the government. The only thing this app is not asking me to allow it access to is my credit card number.

Darrell Kuch

Not very helpful Alert goes off indicating Possible Tornado but when you tap on Notification it shows no warnings.

Steve Elliott

Notifications but no info? (Resolved) I've had a number of notifications for alerts but when I click through from the alert, the app said there are no current alerts. Update: very fast response time from development team and a reinstall fixed the problems.

Sam Haines

5 stars if zombie apocalypse warning is included in this app

Punk Rock

Needs "share" button for social media Great app, but would really like to see an update so we can share amber alerts and other emergency's with family and friends over social media sites.

Otto Comin

Perfect Does exactly what it says.


To slow The alberta emergency alert isint indicateing tornatoes quickly enough

Mike Dennys

Accurate polling of data from multiple sources

Jody Mitoma

Thank you for this.

Gaytha Heighes

Emergency Good. to be informed

Michael Dickau

Can't silence the alarm. Even on silent mode a harsh alarm goes off at any hour of the night. Great idea though.

Phil Tammy Grant

A must-have Good app to have, only wish is that I can share warnings quickly and easily with others

Ryan F

If you're in Alberta, you should have this! There's no reason not to have this on your phone. All the alerts and warnings for your area, including amber alerts!

Annette L'Hirondelle

Awesome Alberta is a huge Province, I love this app, keeps me informed about everything as I have tons a family and friends scattered throughout the province.

Harley Gabel

Great Idea! Amazing idea! But can we please customize what alerts we get? Like different categories. For example, I could have notifications for natural disasters, Dangerous animal warnings, and notifications surrounding schools. It's because I want instant notification on emergencies, but not get warned about something like a train crash, so I don't get in trouble with alarms going off over something that won't affect me at the moment in the middle of class.

Ai Oh

Some flaws I would like to be able to select more than just one area (if I want to alert someone I know in another city for example ). And for some reason the default sound is Silent and I can only select from my phone's list of sounds vs the AEA-specific one).

Simon Brown

very informative, provides exactly the right amount of information. Very user friendly. App doesn't overload the phone and limits the number of notifications are reasonable

Benjamin Eastep

False sense of security On my HTC one m8, this app does nothing. Maybe if you actually open the app, you get some alerts, but an emergency alert app needs a background service that works all the time, otherwise its totally pointless. I've had this installed for several months and it has literally never delivered a single alert, even when I have received weather alerts and such from other sources

Nathan Ricciuti

Great app Good to have on your phone if you work or live anywhere in Alberta. Live updates and informative maps A+

Bob Pannenbecker

I'd give it 5 if this app had a default sound effect. The TV/radio alerts do, I'd like to see that sound embedded in the app

Scott Young

Garbage We just got pounded by a storm with 116km winds and toonie sized hail. The Weather Channel app gave me plenty of warning hours prior. This app supplied absolutely nothing.

Keith Trott

Poor Implementation Environment Canada issues Alerts which can be picked up by RSS feeds. Alberta Environment say they are not responsible to upload alerts to their app (AEA). I suggest you set up an RSS feed to get alerts and then you can decide if it applies to you and if it is serious.

Jillian Payton

Not getting alerts. Right now we are under a severe thunderstorm watch and it has been on Environment Canada and on The Weather Network websites and apps since Noon today, but nothing came up on this app. Really disappointed. I work outdoors and the funnel cloud over Calgary Area few weeks ago scared me so I got this app to alert me about severe weather. Didn't happen today

Martin Waugh

Good idea but poorly executed. Installed today (August 5, 2015) after hearing a radio article yesterday suggesting it's usefulness. But after an Emergency Alert was issued later in the day, the app did not make any sound to provide audio alert, did not indicate (on my Samsung S4) that any alert message was waiting. After the radio interrupted to broadcast an Alberta Alert then I looked at my mobile - nothing, until I actually opened the app to see a message. Very poor! I would expect a highly audible sound alert and a visual alert to indicate something. Shouldn't the alert be via a text message or something? Presently, I would not trust my welfare to this app. Hopefully the developer will improve... soon! I love the concept.

Paul Smith

Could be better Please add more alarm control options. I'm not interested in having an ear splitting alarm go off for an amber alert when I'm out of province on holiday.

Guy Davis

Too many notices! Living in southern Alberta, everyday I get notified of an ice jam way in northern Alberta. Then notified warning is lifted. Boy who cried wolf. Uninstalling...

Moitheri Manana

The best Never miss any amber alert? Gave me a huge fright at first because it's so loud but it's good gets me to stop whatever I'm doing. Really great app

R Prada

Very useful app This can an extremely useful app with a lot of helpful info. I've used it numerous times in the field. The emergency preparedness page has useful info as well.

Gregg Langer

Stuck with a klaxon I want to be able to change the alert sound for 'critical' alerts. Literally every other app lets me change all their notification behavior and I found out at 2:30am that I'm stuck with "horrifying klaxon" for yours. I don't care if you think it's an emergency and want to wake me up, the ring my phone makes does so without confusing and spooking me. Further there's no feedback option in the app that I can see, or on the AB Emergency Alert Facebook page, hence this review.

Dosnt work Had this app for awhile now and not once has it worked. Pointless app

Noobusing Hacks

How do i report bugs? Its been going off once in a while for no aparent reason the i tap the button on the task bar and there are no alerts

Maureen Riley

Why does site say no advisory at this time when we are clearly in a tornado watch around Calgary (as per the weather network)

Brian Rawson

Simple interface, prompt alerts I've used it a few months, and other than a couple system-wide tests, the only notifications I've received were important and timely (5-10 minutes faster than TV and radio emergency broadcast alerts for tornado warnings).

green soda

Therw was no alart at all when there was alart all over the news or weather net work...

Sebastien Canuel

It's a nice app good info I only wish you could merge this app with Alberta 511 and Albeta Wildfire. I use those others the most.

Barry Lucas

Can not down load thos app

Kelly Kearns

Does not work Calgary was under a SEVERE WEATHER WARNING. NO alert...

William Baker

Reliable system Kept me safe on two occasions.

Terry Noble

Alberta Emergency Alert I get the Alwrt tone and part of the description. I highlite to read more ans the screen shakes and I get no information. Tried unstalling and change.

Barry Evans

Best alerts and updates Get all emergency information on this app. Alerts to your phone.

Ahmad A.

Working Great on my OnePlus One Currently using it to keep alert about the wild fire currently spreading rapidly over in Fort McMurray, where some relatives are.

Jack Matier

Loved it but it doesn't open alerts anymore.

Kory Blackmore

Stability issues I really can't rate an emergency alert app highly that is always crashing. Currently the app is completely useless. This sort of thing should be ultra stable!! Not the opposite.

chris dixon

I keep setting my own ringtone but it doesnt use it. Even when my phone is on silent it keeps going off.


Works great I have a wildfire nearby and it just went on i love it

Jennifer Wilson

Useful Very useful

Michele Owens

Great app to have. One problem I downloaded this app and it would not allow me to add more towns than the one area to keep an eye out for and would not let me delete the current one. Please tell me what i am doing wrong.and how i can add more towns to my watchout list.

Gerald Unger

Love It Every Albertan should be using this

Ken Martinsen

Great app Fun how it gives a distinct sound when the alert goes off. I was at a family get together and everyone has this app in two minutes five alerts came off.

Kelsey Roach

Great App but... It's honestly a great app. But like other people have been saying, it doesn't give off alerts. There hasn't been one alert in almost a week and a half. I got this just before the funnel cloud warnings on and around Canada day weekend. Looking into finding a different app soon if it doesn't get any better.. high hopes for nothing really!

Kevin McBride

Notifications are back Used to get notifications when alerts happen. Checked all my settings, uninstalled, re-installed and still nothing even though there is an alert. Edit: notifications came back! More stars.

Nathan S.

Does the job. It does what it's supposed to.

Jeremiah Vintayen

It's okay This app does not respond to my taps and/or my presses. This app needs an update.

Myron F

Saves lives Everyone in Alberta should have this app it's a major enhancement to personal saftey

Steven Little Wolf

This app kept me up to date on the Alberta wild fires, I was actually one of the first to let my friends know they had to get out, even though I was in southern Alberta, all because of this app. GREAT JOB! And the Amber Alert is great.


Out of several critical alerts in the past couple months, have received exactly one notification from this app, and ten minutes after the hour long alert was ended. Google alerts on the same device are far more reliable, and the data available to the app is reliable; just leaves the app itself being unreliable. Expect more from something this important.

. When there servier hail storm like that one happened calgary it was a funnel happening last one damage all houses and cars you should too I saw funnel behind my house didn't go off the hail was so bad. Size of a golf ball but other wise really good app . ? I like it it does alert u all times ?

Maureen Riley

Why does site say no advisory at this time when we are clearly in a tornado watch around Calgary (as per the weather network) actually this happened several times with nothing. Not even a response to this post... Time to delete and up date my rating.

Nathan S.

It does what it's supposed to. There is so much more potential for it, though.

Erick Ostergren

Bad Does not work anymore

Kiara Squires

Great app but Like people have been saying it hasn't gave alerts the past week I have family there and want to know if they are safe sad to say this app isn't working right now when I think gets better I'll rate it higher but nor right now

Collin McGuirk

Downloaded the app but can only add one area. Live in north Calgary so I like to keep track of Airdrie, as well as the county where out trailer is. Need help please
