The Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency has created a new catch-all website to provide residents with emergency information.
The website, saskpublicsafety.ca, which was launched July 7th, will improve residents ability to quickly find timely information on multiple devices, the SPSA says.
From now on, when someone goes looking for information on the Government of Saskatchewan’s “Fire” or “SPSA” sites, it will redirect to SaskPublicSafety.
Policing, Corrections and Public Safety Minister Christine Tell says the site will also be connected to the provincial emergency alerting system, SaskAlert, making it easier to follow active events.
The website will display a singular portal for fire and emergency information, prevention education and tools, current fire bans, wildfire activity and a map that displays the SPSA’s response to emergencies.
Tell adds that this is only the beginning of the process, as the site will continue to evolve to be user friendly.
There’s is also a direct button on the SaskPublicSafety website to get SaskAlerts on a mobile device.
