The RDCK's Emergency Notifications 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. The system will also be used for RDCK Water Notifications, to learn more go to RDCK Current Advisories.
The notification system uses advanced geospatial technology to send personalized alerts based on your selected locations. When you register, you will be given the option of receiving notifications via the mobile app, mobile phone (text and/or call), email or landline.
The notifications that you receive will include information relevant to the emergency, a map showing the affected area and directions such as shelter in place or Evacuation Orders/Alerts.
