Want to be notified about emergency alerts for the Comox Valley, such as boil water notices being put into effect or lifted?

The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) emergency notification system sends important alerts via both text message and voice call to those who have signed up to receive them. These notifications are intended to inform you about incidents that could impact you – working together, we can take proactive steps to build a safer and more resilient community. Initially, the notifications will focus on boil water notices but will later be expanded to include other types of emergency messages.

If registering for boil water notifications, be sure to select the community in which you live and also indicate that you wish to sign up for boil water advisories by selecting the Comox Valley Water System (boil water) notification list.
