New Emergency Notification System
In times of crisis it is important that residents have access to trusted, timely and accurate information to ensure their own safety and that of their family and loved ones. In response to this need, the MD of Bighorn has launched a new Emergency Notification System powered by Voyent Alert!
The sign-up process is simple and is available to anyone wishing to receive notifications from the MD of Bighorn.
When you sign up for emergency alerts, you are asked to place a pin on the map for your location(s) of interest. You can have as many pins placed as you like, they can be for any locations you are interested in receiving alerts for. Locations of interest may include home, work, kid’s school, or other locations you frequent. This location-based pin allows you to receive notifications that affect very localized areas.
How to Register:
Registration for the service is FREE, simple and totally anonymous.
For Mobile App Alerts: Download and install the Voyent Alert! app from the Apple or Google Play app stores.
For Email, Text Message or *Voice Call Alerts: Register online at https://register.voyent-alert.com
* If you are requiring assistance with the Voice Call to landline option, please contact the MD of Bighorn office at 403-673-3611 and a staff member can assist you.
