Why can’t I set my location in Alertable?

The locations that you can choose in the Alertable app are official regional boundaries defined by the Standard Geographical Classification (SGC) codes from Statistics Canada. If you cannot find a specific location, try searching for the larger municipality (eg. to get alerts for Sydney, NS, add Cape Breton, NS) and you will get notifications for your area.

  1. Go into Settings (top right hand part of the main screen).
  2. Touch Locations (the first option in the Settings screen).
  3. Start typing the name of the location you want to add in the top entry bar.
  4. Choose the location from the list of results that appears below the search bar.

You can continue adding more locations following those steps.
