Tecumseh Keeps Everyone Safe with New Alert System

The Town of Tecumseh Keeps Residents Safe and Informed with the Tecumseh Alert System


Residents and Businesses Can Sign Up to Receive Critical Communications and Emergency Alerts


TECUMSEH, ON March 9, 2016 — Tecumseh, Ontario is launching a new mass notification system to keep residents, staff and emergency personnel safe and informed with quick and reliable emergency notifications and public service announcements. The Town of Tecumseh will begin using this mass notification system to communicate with citizens and businesses during emergencies and other critical events. Residents are encouraged to register immediately to receive these alerts: www.tecumsehalert.ca or by calling 519 735 6381


The Town of Tecumseh will use this emergency notification system to alert residents about a variety of events, ranging from severe weather, fires, floods and other emergencies, to more routine announcements, such as road closures and water utility maintenance. Messages will be sent to residents on their preferred contact paths—cell phone, text message, home phone, email, fax, pager and more—to ensure real-time access to potentially lifesaving information. Residents listed in the Town of Tecumseh databases will be automatically subscribed to alerts by phone, citizens are encouraged to self-register and provide additional contact information.


“We have a commitment to ensure public safety, community awareness and emergency response. To uphold this, when critical information and public service announcements are available, we need to reach our residents as quickly and reliably as possible,” said Doug Pitre, Director Fire Services & Fire Chief. “This emergency notification system allows the Town of Tecumseh to send out this information across all types of devices, ensuring residents have access to real-time public information when they need it the most.”


Residents and Businesses are asked to register now to receive Tecumseh Alerts.
