City of Vancouver announce on Thursday (December 02, 2021) to use of alertable, a downloadable smartphone app, to provide public safety alerts to local residents, visitors, and commuters when significant local emergencies happen.
This municipal-level public alerting system will enable timely distribution of information for urgent and severe emergency events affecting the city of Vancouver. The Alertable app is free, and can be downloaded to smart mobile phones, tablets, computers, or smart speakers.
This app complements our existing methods for notifying the public of emergencies, which include social media, local news media, updates to our website, and door knocking. We may issue alerts for significant emergencies such as major fires and disruptive hazardous materials, where the public needs to take urgent action.
