About SRD’s Connect Rocket
- Landline and cellphone numbers will be called from 778-762-3201. Please program this number into your phone. If you have programmed this number into your phone and it still shows up as ‘Unknown Number’ on your call display contact your telecommunications provider.
- Visitors can sign-up temporarily for the number of days they are in the region.
- Many different notification lists are available based on geography (individual islands, legal jurisdictions) and hazard (floodplains, tsunamis)
- Emergency personnel must have access to the internet in order to implement a call from Connect Rocket.
- Currently British Columbia does not have an Earthquake Early Warning system so Connect Rocket cannot be used to let you know the ground will start shaking.
If you know someone who wishes to receive notifications but does not have internet access, please sign-up for them or have them call the Strathcona Emergency Program at 250-830-6702.
