Emergency Notification System
Metro Vancouver has introduced a computer based system to assist in notifying Rural Electoral Area residents of emergencies. It is private, secure and hosted locally at Metro Vancouver. The system is designed to send a voice, text and email message to residents in the event of an emergency that may affect them. Only those who request participation will be notified. The target residents are people who reside in all parts of the electoral area, other than UEL and UBC, as these areas are generally covered by a system that is operated by UBC. The system will only be used for emergencies or other urgent communications and an annual test, no “spam” type messages will be sent.
This service is NOT available to residents in an incorporated municipality, please contact your municipal emergency office for details on what services are offered in your area.
