SAANICH PENINSULA ALERT SYSTEM

North Saanich, Sidney, and Central Saanich municipalities have joined together to provide public safety alerts to the residents of the Saanich Peninsula. This system called Saanich Peninsula Alert, in real time, is designed to deliver critical and potentially life-saving alerts to residents and stakeholders who have registered. Alerts would be sent for events such as earthquakes, tsunami alerts, evacuation notices, or other safety threats.

To receive alerts, please register with Saanich Peninsula Alert. Your participation in this system is voluntary and all information you provide is protected and confidential.

NOTE: Any alerts sent over Alert Ready (Wireless Public Alerting System) takes precedence over any notifications sent via Saanich Peninsula Alert.

At any time you may edit your profile or unsubscribe.
