After the tsunani warning last night I’ve had a few phone calls from people asking how they can ensure that they are notified of a imminent emergency.
The Comox Valley Emergency Program has a notification system to keep residents and businesses informed in a timely manner. Alerts will be sent to a mobile phone OR via voice message on a landline and can be tailored to the community in which you live. Sign up for it here. If you want to receive alerts relevant to Hornby Island make sure that you select our zone which is Electoral Area A (Baynes Sound – Denman/Hornby Island)”.
If time allowed, the secondary notification would be HIFR driving our five trucks through affected neighborhoods broadcasting the warning over our loudspeakers.
