Sign up for alert notifications

Residents can receive immediate emergency issue notifications from City of Vernon

The City of Vernon’s website has a feature that will send residents instant notification whenever the city issues an emergency alert or news release.

“I encourage residents to visit the website and subscribe to updates,” said Nick Nilsen, communications cfficer for the city. “You can choose to receive emergency alerts and news releases, as well as other alerts such as upcoming events, bid opportunities, meetings and even job postings.”

The emergency alert option is one of the best ways to receive timely, accurate information heading into the spring snow melt.

“As the snowpack melts and water levels in the lakes increase, we will use the emergency alerts and news releases to keep you informed about events as they unfold,” said Nilsen.

Go to www.vernon.ca/subscribe, enter your e-mail address, and check the boxes to indicate the updates you want to receive. You can change or cancel your choices at any time.

In the event of flooding, updates will be provided through the local news outlets and on the City’s social media pages: https://www.facebook.com/CityofVernon and https://twitter.com/CityofVernon.
