Residents of the Columbia Shuswap Regional District are invited to take part in a brief online meeting about Alertable, the regional district’s new mass notification system.

During information session, being held at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, July 27, Tracy Hughes, communications coordinator for the CSRD, will be providing updated information on the service that went live on July 23.

Alertable is a multi-purpose communication platform used to send alerts to residents, businesses and visitors during critical events like fires or floods, as well as for relevant day-to-day communications, such as water advisories.

The program serves the Shuswap Emergency Program (SEP) and other emergency programs in the region.
