Westshore Public Alert Notification System (PANS)

In the case of a public safety incident, the Westshore Public Alert Notification System (PANS) will be used to deliver critical and potentially life-saving alerts to residents who have registered. This information can help you and your family know what to do, where to go, and what to expect.

Sign up to receive critical alerts for major emergencies and disasters (ie. tsunami, earthquake, wildfire) and/or lower severity alerts (ie. traffic, weather). You can also choose to receive notifications for more than one location such as your home, office, cottage, family, friends, etc.

Notifications can be received by:

  • Home, cell, or work phone;
  • Email;
  • SMS Text Message;
  • Smartphone app;
  • Social media;
  • and more!

If you live, work, or play in the Westshore, you are invited to register! Signing up is free, easy and can be done from your mobile phone, tablet, or computer. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Existing PANS Subscribers

Did you already sign up in the past to receive PANS notifications (ie. pre-April 2021)? The Westshore PANS changed service providers/platforms on April 26, 2021. As a result, all existing PANS subscribers will need to re-subscribe to the new platform (called Alertable) in order to continue receiving alerts.
Please note: existing PANS subscribers who do not re-subscribe before July 26, 2021 will no longer receive emergency alerts. Sign-up for the new platform today!
