How it works
When an emergency occurs, messages will be sent to all registered contacts in the impacted neighborhood. If the emergency is large in scale, 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. When you register, you will be asked whether you are a resident or visitor.
- 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 all neighbourhoods you spend time in, such as where you work, play, and the neighbourhoods that house the school or childcare facility that your child attends.
- 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.
