–Mike Hicks, Juan de Fuca Electoral Area Director
Starting today, residents of the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area may register at online for the Emergency Notification System.
The Juan de Fuca Electoral Area includes East Sooke, Otter Point, Shirley, Jordan River, Port Renfrew, Malahat, and Willis Point.
In the event of a significant emergency or disaster, the emergency notification system will quickly notify residents who may be impacted by the situation. This system can call your home phone or cell phone, send a text, and/or email important safety information or instructions.
This system costs the JDF taxpayers $ 1,164 per year and will be invaluable in case of a tsunami, earthquake, wild fire or policy emergency. Less than 20 cents per resident is extremely good value for this service and we are grateful to our Emergency Services manager Jeri Grant who put this together.
- If you are a JdF resident, take a moment and register here.
