Upcoming Events

Voyent Alert! Information Sessions


We are offering two dates to ask questions or get help to sign up for Voyent Alert!:

  • November 12 from 10 am to 1 pm - Forum, 100 Jensen Avenue East
  • November 14 from noon to 3 pm - Qualicum Beach Town Hall, lower lobby
Provided by the City of Parksville and the Town of Qualicum Beach, Voyent Alert! is a new multi-purpose communication service which will be used to send alerts to residents, businesses and visitors during critical events such as floods or fire as well as relevant day-to-day communications such as road closures, snow removal and water advisories.

Anyone who registers for the Parksville-Qualicum Beach notification system will receive personalized information such as the distance and direction from an incident and preferred evacuation routes from locations the subscriber chooses. The service allows registrants to create and set multiple locations such as workplace, a child’s school or a relative’s home. Notifications about life-safety events related to those locations will then be sent to registrants through the Voyent Alert! system on whichever communications method has been selected.
