ALERTS

There are many ways you can obtain information during an emergency or disaster. You can monitor local media through a television set or radio, you can check for alerts through social media and you can monitor the situation on various websites.


REGION OF ST. PAUL NOTIFICATION/ALERT SYSTEM

While Alert Ready is a Federally and Provincially led initiative, we at the Town/County of St. Paul, Town of Elk Point and Summer Village of Horseshoe Bay are here to notify you of any incidents which hit closer to home. Those could include notifications for severe weather, highway interruptions or essential services down. However, please note that the Wireless Public Alert (WPA) will take precedence over notifications you will receive from the town, as required by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunicatios Commision (CRTC) For more information, go to https://crtc.gc.ca/eng/television/services.alert.htm

You can subscribe by going on-line to www.stpaul.ca

People can also stop in at their Municipal Office and asked to be signed up. “If you don’t sign-up, you won’t receive the Notifications or Alerts. There is no cost to the individual, so why wouldn’t you sign-up”.

For any further questions please call Regional Emergency Management at 780-645-1768.
