Did you get a notification about the recent Water Quality Advisory? You can receive notifications like this by downloading the Voyent Alert app, or sign up online to be notified by text, email, or even a phone call.

During an emergency it is important that residents have access to reliable, timely, and accurate information to ensure their own safety and that of their family and loved ones. In response to this need, communities within the Regional District of Bulkley Nechako have chosen Voyent Alert! as the communication service provider for these kinds of events. Voyent Alert! is a multi-purpose communication service used to send alerts to residents, businesses, and visitors during critical events like fires or floods as well as for relevant day-to-day communications such as public works maintenance, snow removal advisories, etc. How to Register: Registration for the service is FREE, simple, and totally anonymous. Receive notification through a Mobile App. Download and install the Voyent Alert! app from the Apple or Google Play App stores.

  • Personalized Communications: Voyent Alert! provides emergency and public alerts such as the distance and direction from an incident, or planned maintenance.

  • Track Multiple Locations: Voyent Alert! allows you to create and track multiple locations such as “Kids School” or “Mom’s House”. Any event or communication related to your tracked locations will be forwarded to you by your preferred communication channel.
