Messages can advise people what to do, where to go and what to expect should there be an emergency situation in Saskatoon.

Emergency situations where a real notifynow message would be sent out could be an tornado, hazardous materials spill or plane crash.

People with an unlisted phone number, those who have just moved to Saskatoon and those without a landline, will need to sign-up to receive their notifynow messages.
