“SaskAlert ”

OverallIn the event of power outages, SaskAlert messages are still able to be pushed out by the Regina office.
ProsThe pre-made messages for the various types of alerts.
ConsThe program is continually changing. Every training session offered, something new about the program is being presented.

Thank you for your review, Helen. Glad to hear that the alert templates are useful and good to hear you have arrangements with other municipalities using the same system to send an alert on your behalf in case of power outage.

“Alertable Platform Review (AEA)”

ProsThere is a huge benefit with having a platform that has built-in templates to utilize when you are in a hurry - like during an emergency/disaster. Spell checking ensures that a message is accurate and makes sense. Click and drag options for sections is helpful.
ConsThere is a disconnect when building directions from the click and drag in that you can't just type what you want, you must choose at least one in the bank.

“SaskAlert”

ProsOnce the training is received, this software program is easy to navigate through. I have never had an issue during my practice training alerts, or actual alerts. I like how quickly the information can get out to the resident in the community who have the app on their phones. It is easy to quickly do an update and cancel an alert.
ConsSome of the areas to fill in are specific on the information required. Therefore, it can be confusing as to what exactly is needed in these areas.

Thank you for your review, Cindy. Glad to hear that you are able to quickly send an alert when you need to. And thank you for the feedback on how the system can be improved.

“Valuable Communication”

OverallWe use the system to alert our residents of events that are happening in our jurisdiction as far as emergency management goes. Like drinking water advisories, water disruption. Fortunately we have not needed to use it for flooding and fire events in our municipality but it would certainly be of value in those circumstances.
ProsThe ease of use, the design is organized.
ConsI cannot comment on any cons for this platform.

Vendor Response

By Public Emergency Alerting Services on August 21, 2019
Thank you for the review, Candace. Glad that you are finding the system valuable and useful for your community.

“Review of Alertable”

ProsI like that it auto-fills some items that you need for the alert.
ConsI wish that it auto-filled more if we select a particular alert, and the event description and all other necessary information populated, which would make it much easier to operate.

Vendor Response

By Public Emergency Alerting Services on September 3, 2019
Thank you for your review, Jennifer. Glad to hear that the auto-fill capability is of value.
