Manitoba Municipality Launches Emergency Notification App

By Sarah Klein

Ritchot AppResidents living in the RM of Ritchot now have access to up-to-date emergency information in their community.

A new app and website allows municipality staff to send alert notifications directly to residents in the event of an emergency.

“Given that much of our municipality is located in a flood zone, we wanted to launch the app before the 2015 spring thaw in the event that residents needed to be notified about any road closures or pertinent weather information,” said Ritchot Mayor Jackie Hunt.

“We encourage our residents and the media to download this app. It is an instant way to have access to information during emergency situations and to stay up-to-speed on what is going on in the community.”

The app — for iPhone and Android— was developed by All-Net.ca, and includes local notices, community events, maps and the RM’s business directory.
