Town of Aylmer Emergency Alert System
Submitted By Mike Holmes on Saturday, March 7, 2020
The Town of Aylmer has launched a new emergency alerting system powered by Voyent Alert! a Canadian-based notification service designed specifically for small to medium sized municipalities and regional governments. Residents and visitors who register for alerts will receive critical information about significant weather events, boil-water advisories or other emergencies in the town. 

The Town of Aylmer new emergency alerting system is a great addition to our community Emergency Operations Centre and will allow EOC staff to provide critical life-safety information to anyone who registers. The emergency alerting system is another way for people to be personally prepared for emergencies.

Anyone who wishes to register for the Aylmer Emergency Alerting System will receive information such as the distance and direction from an incident, and preferred evacuation routes from locations the subscriber chooses.

The service also allows registrants to create and set multiple locations such as "Kids' School" or "Mom's House." Communication about life-safety events related to those locations will then be sent to registrants through the Voyent Alert! smartphone app, or whatever communication method they select in the system.

Those who don't use the smartphone app can receive emergency alerts by text/SMS, email or phone call to cell or landline. The system's smart alerting capabilities ensure that registrants will only get notified when information is relevant to them or to one of the locations they have set when they register. Registration for the service is free, straight-forward and anonymous. Residents can cancel their registration or change their settings at any time.
