In the event of a major emergency, be informed! 

The Town of Montreal West has implemented an automated emergency notification system called Code Red. In the event of a major emergency, the Code Red system provides the Town with the ability to reach and inform residents of a potential danger within minutes. The system is capable of transmitting millions of messages per hour. Residents will receive important information, including possible procedures to follow. This information can be transmitted by telephone, email, and/or SMS text messages. Potential emergencies may include major fires, gas leaks, environmental disasters, road closures, evacuation notices, and water supply problems such as boil water advisories. This system can be used to notify the entire Town at large or to pinpoint a single street or area of affected residents. For example, certain residents on a street would be notified of a water supply problem due to a water main rupture.

It is important for you to sign up to the Code Red system if you meet any of the following criteria:

  • You only have a cellular phone at home
  • Your phone number is not listed in the telephone book
  • You have recently moved to Montreal West.
Please note that you will see 866-419-5000 on your call display should an emergency call be made to you on behalf of the Town. Sign up for the Montreal West Code Red service online.
