The RDCK is pushing their new free emergency notification system.
Regional Fire Chief and GM Of Emergency Services Andrew Bellerby says the situation in Fort McMurray is a reminder of the need to act quickly.
Anyone can sign up to the system so if something big happens the RDCK can send a mass text or landline call.
He says 300 people signed up for the service when they switched it on on Saturday but he wants all 60,000 residents in the RD to go online and do the same.
We have a link to the free emergency notification system on our website.
