Federal and provincial services advise users about issues at a provincial or district level. Federal and provincial alerts provide general warnings in order to effectively notify the variety of users in their regions. How the issue might impact you, specifically, might not always be immediately apparent.
Voyent Alert! works at a more detailed level. We provide you with customized information including where the alert is relative to your location and your immediate next steps.
Additionally, as Voyent Alert! is administered at the community level it can be used for general day to day communications and local services (i.e. 311 features).
