Emergency Alerting

We are pleased to announce the launch of Connect, our new communication system. We will keep you alerted on the latest news, events, weather and emergency alert messages from Canada’s national emergency alerting system (Alert Ready). 


Prairie Mountain Health/Santé Prairie Mountain (PMH) was officially formed in June 2012, following the Manitoba government amalgamation of the former regional health authorities of Assiniboine, Brandon and Parkland. It is one of five regional health authorities in the province.

The Region covers a geographically large area, around 67,000 sq. kilometres. It runs east-west from Saskatchewan/Manitoba border communities like Benito, Elkhorn and Russell to Waterhen Lake, Lake Manitoba and Treherne. From north-south, the region runs from the 53rd parallel north of Mafeking and close to Dawson Bay, right down to the United States border near communities like Melita, Deloraine, Boissevain, Killarney and Cartwright.
