Get Notified Emergency Notification System
Are you connected to the Comox Valley water supply system?
Want to be notified by voicemail or text message emergency alerts like a boil water notice being lifted or put into place? The CVRD is implementing a new emergency notifications service to keep residents and businesses informed in a timely manner.
The service will issue prompt emergency notifications to landline or mobile phones through a text or voice message. Initially the service will focus on boil water notifications but will later be expanded to include all other types of regional emergency messages.
The free sign-up process is simple. Just go to www.comoxvalleyrd.ca/getnotified. Follow the steps outlined for setting up your account. Remember to choose both the community in which you live and the Comox Valley Water Supply System (boil water) notification lists. If you are not interested in receiving boil water notifications simply register for the community in which you live:
- City of Courtenay
- Electoral Area A (Baynes Sound – Denman/Hornby Island)
- Electoral Area B (Lazo North)
- Electoral Area C (Puntledge – Black Creek)
- Town of Comox
- Village of Cumberland).
There are many residents within the Comox Valley that do not have access to a computer. If you wish to receive notifications but currently do not have a computer please call 250-334-6057 and we will help set up your account for you. All you need to know is the phone number you wish to use and the community in which you live. Callers will also be asked if they are part of the Comox Valley Water Supply System and if they would like to receive boil water notifications.
