The City of Charlottetown and its Emergency Measures team is urging the public to sign up for alerts through the Charlottetown Alert System. The primary goal of the alert system is to notify residents of emergency situations, such as evacuations and severe weather impacts. The system will also be used for informing the public about the location of emergency shelters as well as other vital, time-sensitive information.
The alert system is subscription based, which means residents have to willingly provide their contact information in order to receive notifications. Those who sign up can choose how they receive messages, such as by phone, text or email. There are also optional alerts that the public can sign up for, including community event announcements, traffic advisories and notifications for when the City expects to be de-icing or plowing. Anyone who signs up for alerts can opt out at any time.
Subscription to the service is free. Sign up online at: www.charlottetown.ca and click the Charlottetown Alert System button. If you require assistance signing up, call 902-629-4000, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday – Friday.
