New Emergency Alert System Comes to Kitimat

District of Kitimat
KITIMAT - The District of Kitimat is switching providers for its community emergency notification system. The municipality's new Voyent Alert is a multi-purpose communication tool consisting of two services:

1) Emergency Communications
The primary purpose of the service is to provide emergency communications information. Residents can receive information during critical safety events such as extreme weather, fires, floods, water quality advisories, and more.

2) Non-Emergency Communications
Residents can also register to receive non-emergency notifications from the District of Kitimat. By registering on the Voyent Alert app, you will be able to select what type of information you would like to receive including facility news, traffic impacts, and general information.

If residents are currently subscribed to our emergency alert system, they will automatically be subscribed to the new system and do not need to sign up again. Personal information is protected and secure during this transition.To change profile information or notification preferences, or to select non-emergency information, go to www.kitimat.ca/alerts or download the Voyent Alert app on Google Play or from Apple Store.

New users can sign up at www.kitimat.ca/alerts or download the Voyent Alert app on Google Play or from Apple Store.  Emergency notifications received on a mobile phone will come from phone number 250-632-8540. For assistance setting up with Voyent Alert, call 250-632-8900 or email alerts@kitimat.ca.
