Introducing Voyent Alert!

In times of crisis it is important that residents have access to trusted, timely and accurate information to ensure their own safety and that of their family and loved ones. In response to this need, Saddle Hills County has chosen Voyent Alert! as an additional means of communication to get this important information to residents in a timely and effective way.

Voyent Alert! is a multi-purpose communication service. We will be able to send alerts to residents, businesses, and visitors during critical events, such as wildfires and floods, as well as notifications on things such as truck fill closures and road advisories. You can opt in or out of any of the additional notifications and cancel the service at any time. It is completely free, and will allow you to monitor events in any region that is subscribed to the Voyent Alert! service.
