Public Altering System for Emergency Notifications
The Public Alerting System (PAS) is a way for the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George and District of Mackenzie to communicate important information to the most people in a short amount of time. When emergencies like severe weather, floods or wildfires happen, all registered contacts in that area will receive texts, voice calls or emails with public safety notifications and evacuation alerts and orders.
Register for notifications on the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George Public Alerting System Website.
