People in the Cowichan Valley are encouraged to sign up for Cowichan Alert, a notification system powered by Alertable.

You can choose to receive urgent or imminent risk notifications by text, email, or phone call. You can also chose to receive notifications on less urgent incidents such as wildfires, flooding, hazardous materials, significant road closures, and boil water alerts.

Signing up is easy and can be done from your mobile device, tablet, or computer. You can also choose to download the app.
