I have Shaw, and I was watching a US show recorded on my Shaw Gateway and the alert came on.
My comment was from 2020 and it has probably changed from then.

I was at the Eye Dr having my eyes checked when it went off.

Just looked at my phone and it shows nothing now.

Added..found it!

Here we go again . . . at 1:55 p.m. today the emergency alert will be sounded.

In the past, with at least three different phones and two different providers, I've not received the emergency alert. I have literally never received it. So I have a new phone now, an iPhone 13, and we'll see what happens. If I don't receive it today I will definitely take it personally! I will let you know!

Glad yours was working. Had it going in a few places in the house and confused the dog.

Just before getting in the car I muted my phone. That did the job nicely.
