  2. False alarm? And here I’ve spent the last two hours diligently following the instructions from the first alert. Does this mean that I should stop taking no action?

  3. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7878651/Ontario-government-warns-incident-Toronto-area-nuclear-generating-station.html) reduced by 87%. (I’m a bot)

    > The initial message said the incident had occurred at the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station, though it added there had been no abnormal release of radioactivity from the station.

    > The Pickering Generating Station employs about 4,500 people and is the largest employer in the Durham Region.

    > Ontario Power Generation, the government-run electric company, wants to put off dismantling of the station until 2054.OPG says that deferring the dismantling of the station would protect its employees from exposure to radioactive waste.

  4. Soon they too will ruin the emergency alarm system to the point where people will not take any alarm seriously!

  5. They are testing us for something big coming up.

  6. Yeah no it only woke me up 6 times this morning. They have to stop using that alert system for things that aren’t effecting everyone. Most of the time it’s for a kidnapping but the kid was takin by a parent and they’re in Toronto or something 6 hours away. I don’t see how a possible attack from another country deserves the same alert for a lost child. People are going to disregard it when the real emergency comes.

  7. To whomever accidentally triggered that alarm, thanks asshole. It’s always nice to get woken up *multiple times* on the rare day you think you can sleep in.
