Saanich Peninsula Alert
Sidney, North Saanich, and Central Saanich municipalities have joined together to provide public safety alerts to the residents and visitors of the Saanich Peninsula. This system is called Saanich Peninsula Alert and is designed to deliver critical and potentially life-saving alerts to anyone who has registered. Alerts would be sent for events such as earthquakes, tsunami alerts, evacuation notices, or other safety threats. There is no sign up fee for Saanich Peninsula Alert.

As of March 25, 2021, Saanich Peninsula Alert transitioned to a new provider in order to offer better service to residents, visitors, and stakeholders of the Saanich Peninsula.
The most significant change and benefit under the new system is that it allows registrants to set their notifications to include multiple areas. This enables the user to keep up-to-date on areas outside of their own neighbourhood or municipality. For example, someone residing in North Saanich may work in Central Saanich and have elderly parents living in Sidney. With the new system, the user can set up notifications for all three areas, or more if they choose.
