SquamishAlert

 

SquamishAlert is an emergency notification system that enables the District of Squamish to communicate important information quickly in the event of emergencies. Register today and know you’ll have the up-to-date information you need during an emergency.

When an emergency occurs, telephone, text, email or mobile app messages will be sent to all registered contacts in the impacted area. The system enables us to provide you with critical information in a variety of situations, such as severe weather, wildfire, floods, debris flows, unexpected road closures, and any other emergency events that could impact you, your family and your community.
