The District of Muskoka’s Emergency Response Committee (MERC) launched the #AlertMuskoka app today.

The app is a free community alerting app that will make it easy for residents and communities across Muskoka to quickly receive important information during critical incidents and emergency situations.

The District says that by downloading the app and registering, residents and visitors can select to receive notifications from a wide variety of communication channels including mobile apps, text/SMS alerting, email or voice calling.   Any event or communication related to your tracked locations will be forwarded to you.   

Jeff McWilliam, Chief of Paramedic Services and Emergency Planning for the District of Muskoka is encouraging all residents and visitors to Muskoka to sign up to receive #AlertMuskoka notifications though their phones or by email.
