Alta. launches online Emergency Registration
The new MyAlberta Emergency Registration System is designed to make it safer and easier for people to register for a reception centre during an emergency, such as a wildfire or flood.
Registering online as soon as an emergency is declared allows the public to quickly access government services. The system also removes the need for in-person contact, reducing the risk of potential COVID-19 exposure for staff and evacuees.
Those without internet access or who are having trouble with online access can call the provincial government’s call centre at 310-0000 to register over the phone.
Government and local municipal emergency management leaders use the information collected through the online registration system to support families who have had to leave their homes during an emergency evacuation.
The system helps them monitor the number of families registered and assess emergency social service needs.
