What is Voyent Alert?

Staying connected with residents is important and Athabasca County is introducing Voyent Alert as another tool to keep you informed! The system provides a range of notices for those who sign-up including emergency events in your county like wildfires and floods, as well as day-to-day communications such as road maintenance and closures, power and water advisories, snow removal advisories and other types of notices that may be required.

What You Can Expect

Personalized Communications

Using Voyent Alert, Athabasca County will provide information such as the distance and direction from an incident, and preferred evacuation routes from your tracked locations if required. The system will also be used to make you aware of any construction projects or service outages that may affect your home, business or route of travel.

Track Multiple Locations

The notification system allows you to create and track multiple locations such as “Kids School” or “Mom’s House”. Any event or communication related to your tracked locations will be forwarded to you along your preferred communication channel.

Communications Your Way

Receive alerts over a wide variety of communication channels including mobile apps, text/SMS alerting, email or voice dial. You can register for one or more communication channels.

No Message Fatigue

Smart alerting capabilities ensure that you will only get notified when a communication is relevant to you or one of the locations you are tracking.
