Whistler Alert is the official emergency notification system used by the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) to communicate with residents and visitors during emergencies. Sign up now to receive alerts via text message, phone, and email of emergencies that may impact your health, safety or property.
Find out more about how to prepare yourself, your family, housemates or pets for an emergency on Whistler’s Emergency Program page.
How it works
When an emergency occurs, messages will be sent to all registered contacts in the impacted neighborhood. If the emergency is largescale, an alert will be sent to all registered contacts in Whistler.
Who can sign-up for Whistler Alert?
Whistler Alert is available to both residents and visitors.
- Residents will be asked to provide their contact information and to select the Whistler neighbourhoods they wish to receive alerts for. We recommend you select neighbourhoods you and your family spend time in, such as where you work, play and, if you have a child, where they attend school or childcare.
- Visitors will be asked for their contact number and to input the date they plan to leave Whistler. Visitors will no longer receive alerts after their intended departure date.
Sign up: it’s easy!
Signing up for Whistler Alert is easy and can be done from your mobile phone, tablet or computer.
