The Columbia Shuswap Regional District is implementing the Alertable mass notification system to send emergency alerts and advisories directly to subscribers. Effective immediately, residents and visitors can sign up to receive direct notifications through a variety of options including a mobile app, text, email, phone website or home smart speakers.  

We encourage everyone to use this program to stay aware of the most up-to-date information on hazards, restrictions or closures. Downloading the mobile app is the recommended option for using this system, as it has the best access to notifications, especially when travelling. The mobile app also allows users to access Drive BC and Environment Canada weather alerts.
 
This program will serve the Columbia Shuswap Regional District's Emergency Programs including: 

Shuswap Emergency Program 
  • CSRD Electoral Areas C, D, E and F, the City of Salmon Arm, the District of Sicamous

Revelstoke and Area Emergency Program (RAEMP) 
  • CSRD Electoral Area B, City of Revelstoke

Golden and Area Emergency Program (GAEMP) 
  • CSRD Electoral Area A, Town of Golden

Alertable is free for the public to use. It is a highly rated mass notification software that is made in Canada and used in more than 1,000 Canadian communities. Notifications are fast, reliable and easy to see and hear. Users can personalize notifications by type and severity and can opt in for multiple locations. Registration is anonymous and a strict privacy policy applies.  

When subscribed, all critical-level alerts will be issued for the areas you have specified. Advisory-level alerts can be customized by the user to suit their needs.
