Always vigilant about its residents’ safety and security, the City of Saint-Lambert has put in place an automated messaging system. In the event of an alert or other emergency situation, the City can record a personalized message and send it out quickly to large numbers of people by telephone or text message.
This system is used only in exceptional circumstances involving, for example, evacuation notices, boil water advisories, unexpected street closures, water service interruptions, etc. In addition, in the event of a localized situation, the system can be used to reach only those residents who are directly concerned.
Register now for your own safety and security
When you register for the automated messaging system, we recommend that you enter your home telephone number (landline).
Since all numbers listed in telephone directories appear automatically in the City’s mailing list, by entering your home telephone number, you will be able to retrieve your already existing file. If you do not have a home telephone number, you can create one using your mobile phone number.
Once you are logged into your file, you will be able to complete your personal information and choose to be notified by telephone or text message.
The information you provide will remain confidential and not be used for any other purpose.
Log on to the residents’ portal to the automated messaging system.
It is your responsibility to manage your file and make sure that your contact information is up-to-date at all times.
Other sources of information
In addition to this service, the City uses all its other normal communication tools to reach the largest number of residents as quickly as possible.
The City’s website and alert banner, its Twitter account, signage on Saint-Lambert territory, the City’s newsletter, and the media offer other efficient sources of information you should consult in the event of an alert or other emergency situation.
Pass on the information
We also ask that you pass on the information to your family, relatives, close friends, neighbours, and anyone else in your vicinity who could be affected by the situation under way. By doing so, you will help ensure your fellow residents’ safety.
