Alert Maple Ridge is the City’s new system for issuing timely notices via your preferred method (text, email and/or phone call) about emergency events as well as service and facility impacts. It is powered by Voyent Alert, a multi-purpose communication service and alerting app that manages rapid dissemination of targeted information with enriched and personalized alerts for both critical emergencies and day-to-day notifications.
By default, all registrants will receive emergency event alerts (like wildfires, floods, storms and other safety hazards). For service and facility impacts (like road closures, field updates and pool closures), users will choose their own topics and locations of interest.
