Voyent Alert! New Emergency Alert System for Aylmer

The Town of Aylmer has launched a new emergency alerting system powered by Voyent Alert! a Canadian-based notification service designed specifically for small to medium sized municipalities and regional governments.

Residents and visitors who register for alerts will receive critical information about significant weather events, boil-water advisories or other emergencies in the town.

Our new emergency alerting system is a great addition to our Emergency Operations Centre and will allow EOC staff to provide critical life-safety information to anyone who registers. The emergency alerting system is another way for people to be personally prepared for emergencies.

Anyone who wishes to register for the Aylmer Emergency Alerting System will receive information such as the distance and direction from an incident, and preferred evacuation routes from locations the subscriber chooses.

The service also allows registrants to create and set multiple locations such as “Kids’ School” or “Mom’s House.” Communication about life-safety events related to those locations will then be sent to registrants through the Voyent Alert! smartphone app, or whatever communication method they select in the system.

Those who don’t use the smartphone app can receive emergency alerts by text/SMS, email or phone call to cell or landline. The system’s smart alerting capabilities ensure that registrants will only get notified when information is relevant to them or to one of the locations they have set when they register.

Registration for the service is free, straight-forward and anonymous. Residents can cancel their registration or change their settings at any time.

Summer Weather Hazards

From hail and heat waves, to thunderstorms and tornadoes, severe weather in Canada takes many different forms in the summer months. It is by knowing what to expect and how to prepare for it, that you will be able to protect yourself, your family and your property from summer weather hazards.

Emergency Management Planning for the Town of Aylmer is the responsibility of the Community Emergency Management Program Committee. The committee is made up of members from Municipal Council, Staff and Local Industry.

There is also a Community Emergency Management Coordinator (CEMC) and a alternate CEMC that are appointed by the Town Council and are responsible for maintenance and testing of the Municipal Emergency Plan.

This Emergency Management Plan is available in accessible formats or with communications supports upon request.
