The City of Saskatoon is testing its mass notification system, notifynow, on Tuesday.
Starting at 6 p.m. CT on May 9, people can expect to receive a test message from the City of Saskatoon’s Emergency Measures Organization (EMO).
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.
