Download SaskAlert To Receive Urgent COVID-19 Information

Released on April 6, 2020

The Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency (SPSA) is encouraging residents to sign up for the SaskAlert App as a way to get accurate and timely information about COVID-19.

“With the risk of COVID-19 within the province, we are encouraging everyone to download the SaskAlert App,” SPSA President Marlo Pritchard said.  “The app will provide urgent, critical information about how individuals and families can protect themselves.”

The SaskAlert App allows users to choose to receive emergency public alerts for the entire province, a particular municipality or a First Nation community.  The app can target residents in a geographic area if urgent information is specific to one region or municipality within the province.

In case of an emergency, a tone will sound, similar to receiving a normal text message notification – even when the app is closed.  Individuals can then open the app to find information on the emergency and instructions on any actions you are required to take.

“Using the SaskAlert App to push out emergency notifications is not meant to replace the normal methods of getting your news,” Pritchard said.  “However, it is an effective method of pushing out urgent information province-wide, or to a localized area.”

The app is available for download on Android and Apple devices at http://emergencyalert.saskatchewan.ca/.
