Notifynow is intended to supply people in Saskatoon with timely and targeted safety messages should there be an emergency situation, like an extreme weather situation or hazardous materials spill.

If a person has a publicly listed phone number, they may already receive the test message. However, those without will need to sign up for notifynow.

The EMO tests the mass notification system twice annually.
