A Picture of tag

tag is building momentum in 2017 by winning the Alert Ready account in a multiagency review.

Alert Ready, Canada’s national emergency alert system’s media awareness campaign, funded by Pelmorex Media Inc., (parent company of The Weather Network and MétéoMédia) selected tag to generate a campaign that drives awareness of the warning system, which notifies Canadians immediately of potentially life threatening events.

The campaign urges Canadians to connect the sound of an alert with the need to stop, listen and respond. The execution includes compelling stories and scenarios that depict the positive impact Alert Ready can have on people’s lives, by responding accordingly.

On selecting tag as their new partner, Robin Flatow, Senior Marketing Manager said, “we were looking for an agency partner that could deliver multi-channel campaigns that would break through in the market and connect with consumers. The team at tag has the strategic experience, executional focus and irresistible energy to help us make an impact across all of our communication platforms”.

The campaign launches in May, to coincide with the launch of Emergency Preparedness Week, and will be supported by television, radio, and digital media. alertready.ca
