Stay Informed

Whether you live, work, or play in the City of Richmond, subscribe to the Richmond BC Alert emergency notification system.

BC Alert

To ensure everyone in your household or business receives notifications, you can provide multiple contact details and select multiple notification methods. The new system allows subscribers to register up to three email addresses, four phone numbers, two SMS numbers, and one Text Telephone (TTY) number.

There is no cost to subscribe. Standard message and data rates may apply, and receipt and formatting of the notification are dependent on the telephone and email provider. Residents can update their accounts at any time and are urged to check them annually to ensure all information is up-to-date.

Once registered, you will be alerted to imminent or ongoing emergencies that may affect you in Richmond.
