Provincial Stakeholder Notification System (PSNS)

The Provincial Stakeholder Notification System (PSNS) was established by the AEMA to ensure that critical emergency management information could be disseminated rapidly to a wide number of partners. The PSNS is not a "public" warning system - it alerts key Government of Alberta staff (Consequence Management Officers, Business Continuity Officers and Cross Government Coordination Team Members) of critical events and tracks the responses of the recipients. Timely information ensures agencies can increase their preparedness in time to save lives and protect essential services. 

PSNS messages are voice recorded at the time of the event and are approximately one minute in length. Recipients of the message will hear:

  • a description of the threat and its potential severity

  • a description of the area affected

  • suggested actions that citizens can take to protect themselves and their families.
