NDG launches bilingual version of citizen alert system

Watch: Citizen alert service – How does it work?

MONTREAL – On Tuesday, the borough of Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce (CDN–NDG) has announced the launch of the bilingual version of its new citizen alert service.

The service has been offered only in French since it was first launched last summer, but the borough said that it hopes to reach even more residents by offering the service to anglophones living in the neighbourhood.

“Once the relevance and effectiveness of the alertes citoyennes service was established, this second stage in its development became vital in order to achieve optimal penetration within the borough’s population,” the borough noted in a statement.

“Eventually, all of the borough’s citizens will be able to receive information in real time from municipal authorities.”

Alertes Citoyennes is a service that gives local residents free access to information, and when necessary, allows the city to share real-time details about emergency situations.

To register for the service, CDN–NDG residents simply need to sign up with an email address here.
