Katepwa and Fort Qu'Appelle
Join The SHIELD Public Safety Alert System

First Multi-Jurisdictional Network in Canada under the SHIELD
January 14, 2014 - The Calling Lakes Region has joined The SHIELD, a Public Safety Emergency Alert System, to provide warnings, advice and/or direction to residents or people transiting the area, of potential emergency situations. The coverage area, at this time, is Katepwa Lake to Pasqua Lake, which includes Katepwa, Fort Qu'Appelle, B-Say-Tah, Fort San and Pasqua Lake.

Emergency Planning Debriefing meetings, from Flood preparations and response, in 2011 and 2013 identified a need to provide enhanced "real time" and "credible" notifications to Residents, Cottage Owner, Business and Snow Bird residents. The SHIELD app, available as a free smartphone download at www.getshield.ca will be used in emergency situations including:
  • Local State of Emergency updates
  • Power, Gas & Telephone disruptions
  • Missing person/Amber Alerts
  • Water Security Agency notification
  • General Advisories
  • Request for Volunteers for Emergencies
  • Evacuation notices/Shelter in Place info
  • Road closures or Detours
  • Weather advisories
Alerts will be generated by District of Katepwa and Town of Fort Qu'Appelle, who have taken the lead, and residents will have access to any message issued from the region. The SHIELD will supplement and update the current Town of Fort Qu'Appelle and District of Katepwa webpage, Facebook page and Twitter account, but will only be used in emergency situations.
