Stay Informed

Many citizens wish to take an active role in being informed, particularly in the event of emergencies or health and safety alerts, such as boil water orders. The City of Saint John provides a number of ways in which citizens can be informed of the latest city news.

We encourage citizens to sign up for notification systems and follow their local news, particularly for emergency information. 

Explorer-horz-col-grad   Website:  The City of Saint John website lists all city news including traffic advisories, construction reports, as well as emergency public notices.  For example, if a boil water order is in effect, you will see a notice on the homepage. 
Emergency Alert Web    Emergency Alert: Sentinel is an Emergency Alert program that sends a telephone voicemail message to registered users in the event of a health and safety issue or an emergency.  You must register for this free service.  You may register online by clicking on the emergency alert icon or you may call the Saint John Fire Department (506) 658-2910. 

  Social Media:  All city news, including emergency notices, are also automatically posted to our facebook and twitter pages.
