"SaskAlert Review"

Pros: I like that it instantly gets out information to all necessary parties quickly and efficiently. It is a very useful tool for municipalities in times of crisis.

Cons: I find that there are times where I am unsure of what information to put in which spots, as some items are to be clicked and other not. With our SaskAlert training, it's very specific as to what we need to write and where things need to go, but I struggle to get it accurate enough. A suggestion I have is to provide written templates for all the different scenarios that will populate when selected. This will help to eliminate the possibility of errors.

"SaskAlert "

Comments: In the event of power outages, SaskAlert messages are still able to be pushed out by the Regina office.

Pros: The pre-made messages for the various types of alerts.

Cons: The program is continually changing. Every training session offered, something new about the program is being presented.

Thank you for your review, Helen. Glad to hear that the alert templates are useful and good to hear you have arrangements with other municipalities using the same system to send an alert on your behalf in case of power outage.

"SaskAlert"

Comments: Very good product, easy to use, friendly & helpful staff.

Pros: SaskAlert is provided free of charge in Saskatchewan. Once training was completed, the only requirement was that 4 test alerts be made, updated and cancelled each year. When we had a water main break while neither of the authorized users had access to the program, a simple call to their office had an alert sent out right away.

Cons: The mapping feature is slightly awkward to use

"Alertable Platform Review (AEA)"

Pros: There is a huge benefit with having a platform that has built-in templates to utilize when you are in a hurry - like during an emergency/disaster. Spell checking ensures that a message is accurate and makes sense. Click and drag options for sections is helpful.

Cons: There is a disconnect when building directions from the click and drag in that you can't just type what you want, you must choose at least one in the bank.
