Reminder! Residents should expect a notifynow TEST message at 10:00 a.m. this morning, December 5, 2018

For immediate release: December 5, 2018 - 9:17am

The City of Saskatoon's Emergency Measures Organization (EMO) will send residents of Saskatoon a notifynow TEST message this morning at 10:00 a.m. Wednesday, 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 or call 306-975-3210.
