BURLINGTON, ON

 

It is called Alert Burlington, a free emergency notification system created to keep you informed about local emergencies – floods, gas leaks, and accidents that could put you or your property at risk. The City encourages residents and people who work in the city to subscribe.

In case of an emergency, Alert Burlington will send you messages through text, email, or phone calls. It will also give you instructions on whether you should leave your location or stay put.

Since its launch in 2022, there hasn’t been a need to send out any emergency alerts. However, it’s always a good idea to be prepared.

It’s great to see the amount of people subscribed to the platform increasing, and I hope it continues to trend that way.”
