The BC Silver alert is voluntary and op-in only. You will only receive an alert if you subscribe via one of the following four alerting channels. When you get an alert, check to see if you are in the same area as the missing person. If you spot someone, follow these instructions.
Direct Email or SMS
We have designed a system where you subscribe to be notified by email or SMS message. You choose where and how you want to be notified. This is the fastest and best way to be notified when someone is missing in your community.
Like BC Silver Alert on Facebook. We will post alerts with the title and a link to the full text.
Updates on missing people will appear on your timeline.
Reddit is a very popular social news aggregation site. You can “join” the BCSilverAlert Reddit community and when any alerts are posted you will see them in your news feed.
Feed or news reading applications exist for most mobile devices. Feedly is one of the more popular ones.
