Register for Saanich Peninsula Alert System
North Saanich, Sidney, and Central Saanich municipalities have joined together to provide public safety alerts to the residents and visitors of the Saanich Peninsula. This system is called Saanich Peninsula Alert and is designed to deliver critical and potentially life-saving alerts to anyone who has registered. Alerts would be sent for events such as earthquakes, tsunami alerts, evacuation notices, or other safety threats. There is no sign up fee for Saanich Peninsula Alert.
Please Note: The existing notification system is transitioning to a new provider in order to deliver an enhanced product and experience to residents, stakeholders, and visitors. Existing registrants to Saanich Peninsula Alert will be required to re-register to continue to receive alerts. Please see below.
The most significant change and benefit under the new system is that it allows registrants to select multiple notification areas. This enables the user to keep up-to-date on areas outside of their own neighbourhood or municipality. For example, someone residing in North Saanich may work in Central Saanich and have elderly parents living in Sidney. With the new system, the user can set up notifications for all three areas, or more if they choose.
As of March 25, 2021 Saanich Peninsula Alert will be exclusively administered through a new platform to inform you of critical events that may impact residents, stakeholders, and visitors on the Saanich Peninsula.
