On May 2nd, 2022 the Strathcona Regional District will be switching to Alertable as our public emergency mass notification service. If you had an account with our previous system Connect Rocket, your information will be transferred into Alertable. If you did not previously have an account, then please set one up at after May 2nd.

What do you have to do?

There is one action required by residents. On May 2nd everyone who had an account with our previous system will receive a welcome message from Alertable. PLEASE SAVE THAT NUMBERin your phone under SRD Emergency Notifications.
Why are we using Alertable?

Our previous system would call landlines, call cellphones and text cellphones. That feature will not change, however, Alertable provides additional ways to notify you when protective actions need to be taken.

For example, alerts can also be sent via a mobile app with an “Override Silent Mode” feature for critical alerts, via the following methods.

The Alertable apps are free and can be downloaded from your mobile phone, tablet, computer, or smart speaker. Downloading the app is not mandatory though, even without the app you will still receive phone calls and text messages. Alertable will cover every community in the SRD, precisely the same way Connect Rocket did.
