Needs some work. I get an alert but doesn’t give specific location.

Thank you for your feedback. Sorry to hear the SaskAlert app is not meeting expectations. If you can contact at us at email@example.com, we'd like to talk about how we can improve the location identification.
Love the fact that we are now being alerted when unforeseen circumstances arise! Gives us a chance to prepare ahead for whatever may be on the horizon. Kudos to all involved!
Yes this is a wonderful idea, but it definitely needs work. It would work well for larger towns. Unfortunately smaller towns don’t show up and you can’t add them to your list
