Every second counts in an emergency situation. That’s why Lac La Biche County is implementing a local emergency alerting system, so we can directly inform residents about wildfires, floods and other situations that may affect them.

You can now sign up electronically to receive notifications from us through this system. Please check back here for updates, or keep an eye on our Facebook page (@laclabichecounty).

Why is the County doing this?

Many other municipalities are using local emergency alerting systems to communicate with their residents. In addition to using social media and our website, this system will allow us to reach residents throughout our community, at any time. The system won’t replace our usual emergency procedures, but it will help us ensure the highest possible number of people are contacted and know what to do when an emergency happens in their area.

We understand that introducing this system is a new direction for us, and residents may have questions about what this means for them. Please read the FAQ below.
