Alertable Emergency Notifications Now Available for Municipal Residents!
Residents of the Town of Yarmouth and the Municipalities of Yarmouth and Argyle can now receive instant notifications for emergencies from the Yarmouth County REMO before, during, and after an event has occurred.
Effective September 7, 2021, Yarmouth County REMO launched the new emergency notifications system with plans to send alerts for all emergencies happening in Yarmouth County. Alertable has been used by the Town of Yarmouth for community notifications and updates for nearly a year, and the system has now been adopted by Yarmouth County REMO to alert residents about severe weather events, fires, floods, and other hazards.
Both residents and visitors are encouraged to sign up and use Alertable to stay informed, stay safe and plan ahead. Alertable is free for the public and provides many alerting options including mobile app, text, email, phone, website, social media, home smart speaker, and more. You can also choose any combination that works best for you.
Notifications are fast, reliable, and easy to see and hear. When signing up, you can easily set your location using your home address or postal code. You can personalize notifications by type and severity, and you can choose notifications for more than one location once registered.
Please note: if you have already signed up to receive community notifications from the Town of Yarmouth’s Alertable system, you will automatically receive emergency alerts from Yarmouth County REMO as both are using the same system. In addition, once you sign up, emergency notifications are initiated.
Over 1,000 communities across Canada are using Alertable to keep residents and visitors informed and safe. It is proven and capable and has been successfully used in a wide range of emergencies.
