High River ALERT system

High River residents can now receive critical, time-sensitive emergency alerts directly through phone, email and text messaging with the brand new High River ALERT System. The new system is part of a comprehensive emergency management plan being implemented by the Town of High River. This system will provide High River residents and businesses as much time as possible to prepare for an emergency and will provide an early warning to ensure they are aware of an emergency situation.

High River ALERT can send notifications regarding:

  • Critical emergency alerts (immediate threat to safety)
  • Severe weather warnings for High River
  • Public safety notifications (water, utility, fire, RCMP, and transportation alerts)

Residents can choose multiple ways to be contacted including home, work and mobile phone numbers, text messages (standard message rates may apply), as well as several email addresses. There is also an iPhone and Android app available for mobile phones.
