Reminder! Residents should expect a notifynow TEST message at 10:00 a.m. this morning, December 5, 2018
The Emergency Measures Organization tests the notifynow emergency notification system twice yearly to familiarize Saskatoon residents with how a notifynow message sounds, and to help be better prepared to respond appropriately in a real emergency situation. Testing the notifynow system also helps to assess the accuracy of the resident database.
What residents should know:
- if you have a publicly listed phone number, you are automatically in the notifynow emergency notification system
- the notifynow test message will clearly indicate ‘this is a TEST message’
- notifynow is a free service; but remember, the system can’t reach you if your information is not up-to-date
- notifynow emergency safety messages can be sent to you by text, voice recording, email or through TTY numbers
Residents can easily customize their notifynow profile and learn more at saskatoon.ca/notifynow or call 306-975-3210.
