Emergency alerts are how we started

We’re a homegrown Canadian company that started in 2018 when our co-founders felt they could revolutionize emergency alerting by making current solutions easier to use, more affordable and scalable so that communities and workplaces of all sizes can benefit from solutions previously only available to a few who could afford them.

Alertable is a top-rated solution and now serving over 1,200 communities in Canada for a combined population of 10,000,000.

Stay Aware & Plan Ahead


Contributor to emergency alert standards

Our co-founder and CTO, Jacob Westfall, is the co-author of international standards and guidelines for public alerting open standards including CAP-CP.

Because we know the standards personally, we ensure that we meet or exceed all of them. You have this level of knowledge, expertise and insight available to you when you use our mass notification software, Alertable.

Check if your mass notification software is CAP-CP compliant.

We Are Emergency Alert Industry Experts

Emergency alerts that work when it counts the most

Our emergency alert software has a long and proven history.  It has been used for the costliest disasters in Canadian history including the Calgary floods in 2013, the Fort McMurray wildfires in 2016 and numerous cross-border floods and fires since.
