PUBLIC SAFETY> Emergency Notification System
The Emergency Notification System, powered by Everbridge, serves 100 Mile House, the Cariboo Regional District (CRD), Quesnel, Wells, and Williams Lake. This system is managed by each local government for their respective areas.
The system is designed to send automated messages to the community regarding emergencies that may affect your home, workplace, school and more.
Residents are able to choose how they are contacted. Notifications can be received by phone, cell phone, email, test message, TTY device or through the Everbridge Mobile App (available for IOS and Android). Residents can set the order they would prefer to receive notifications.
You contact information will not be shared and will only be used by your local government for notification purposes. We will not give or sell your contact or location information to any vendor or other organization. All of you data is hosted in Canada.

Emergency Notification System - Sept. 15, 2015
The City of Quesnel tested the Emergency Notification System on Tuesday, September 15. We are currently investigating issues regarding time of calls, multiple calls, options to stop the calls, mispronouncing Quesnel, a confusing greeting, registered residents not receiving calls and unregistered residents receiving calls.
The Telus white pages are automatically uploaded into the Emergency Notification System. If your number is listed in the Telus white pages, your number is automatically registered into the Emergency Notification System. We are currently looking into whether you can opt out of this as the Telus white pages are public information.
We apologize for any inconvenience and we thank you for your cooperation.
