Why is it important for you to provide an address?
The Safe Communities Alert Network is a sophisticated system that allows us to use targeted mapping and address locations to notify a specific group of residents. Alerts can be sent out according to the geographic area affected. Entering your important addresses, like your home address, allows us to notify you if there is an urgent situation in the immediate vicinity of that address. You can enter up to five addresses into the alert system. Addresses can include your workplace, children’s school, daycare, home address, etc. Please note the system will issue only Black Diamond-area specific alerts. i.e. if your work address is located in Calgary we will not issue alerts for that address.
