The Municipality of Mille-Isles acquired an automated alert system (AAS) to quickly and efficiently reach the population in emergency situations. This system immediately sends a voice message, a SMS (text message) or an email according to your preferences, during a disaster or an emergency situation.
A simple gesture to ensure your own safety, that of your family and the protection of your property.
