The RDCK's Emergency Notification System is a mass-notification system that allows the RDCK to send out critical information to residents and visitors in the event of an emergency.
The system is used in the case of an emergency or disaster that requires you to take action--whether that means you need to evacuate or shelter in place. It is not used to share non-critical information or ongoing updates.
Once you have registered, you will be notified via text, voice call or email, depending on how you sign up, that will instantly alert you to leave your place of residence or current location and seek alternate shelter until the emergency is under control, or to shelter in place.
When you sign up you will indicate the area in which you live in so that you will receive notifications that are relevant to your location.
There is also an added system that will keep evacuees informed with up to date information once they have been evacuated.
