New Website Focuses on Emergency Information
Today, the Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency (SPSA) is introducing a new website, saskpublicsafety.ca, which will increase the ability of Saskatchewan residents to receive timely emergency information on multiple devices.
"The site was designed so that residents can find emergency and disaster mitigation information quickly and efficiently," Policing, Corrections and Public Safety Minister Christine Tell said. "It will also be connected to the provincial emergency alerting system, SaskAlert, making it easier to follow active events."
The new website provides residents and communities with a single portal that provides fire and emergency information, prevention education and tools, current fire bans, wildfire activity and even a map that displays the SPSA's response to emergencies.
Pages that currently live on the www.saskatchewan.ca/spsa and www.saskatchewan.ca/fire websites will automatically redirect to saskpublicsafety.ca starting today.
"This is only the beginning. The new website will continue to evolve to meet the needs of Saskatchewan residents and the agency's stakeholders," Tell said.
Established in 2017, the SPSA is a Treasury Board Crown Corporation responsible for emergency management, Sask911, SaskAlert, the Civic Addressing Registry, wildfire management and fire safety.
