In times of crisis it is important that residents have access to trusted, timely and accurate information to ensure their own safety and that of their family and loved ones. In response to this need, The City of Estevan has chosen Voyent Alert! as the communication service provider for these kinds of events.
Voyent Alert! is a multi-purpose communication service used to send alerts to residents, businesses, and visitors during critical events like extreme weather, fires or floods, etc. as well as for relevant day-to-day communications such as snow removal advisories, planned maintenance, water advisories, etc.
How to register:
Registration for the service is free, simple and totally anonymous.
For Mobile App Alerts: Download and install the Voyent Alert! app from the Apple or Google Play app stores.
For Email, Text Message or Voice Call Alerts: Register online at https://register.voyent-alert.com
What you can expect
Using Voyent Alert!, we will provide information such as the distance and direction from an incident, and preferred evacuation routes from your tracked locations if required. The system will also be used to make you aware of any construction projects or service outages that may affect your home, business or route of travel.
Track multiple locations
The notification system allows you to create and track multiple locations such as “kids School” or “Mom’s House”. Any event or communication related to your tracked locations will be forwarded to you along your preferred communication channel.
Communication your way
Receive alerts over a wide variety of communication channels including mobile apps, text/SMS alerting, email or voice dial. You can register for one or more of these communication options.
No message fatigue
Smart alerting capabilities ensure that you will only get notified when a communication is relevant to you or one of the locations you are tracking.
If an emergency happens in our community, it may take emergency workers some time to reach you. Therefore, you should be prepared to take care of yourself and your family for a minimum of 72 hours.
There are four reception centres in the event of an emergency that will accept residents in case of an emergency:
- Estevan Comprehensive School (255 Spruce Drive)
- Estevan Leisure Centre (701 Souris Avenue)
- St. Paul’s United Church ( 1418 3rd Street)
- Church of God (1920 Wellock Road)
