CFSG(O-G) has implemented a three-pronged process to disseminate important messages to the entire NCR Defence Team.

First, the website is the dedicated online resource for information distributed to the DND/CAF community in case of emergencies and delivers essential messages in an effective and timely manner. This tool is accessible to the entire Defence Team, 24/7 from any location with Internet access, as well as on any mobile device with data available. It is also accessible through the Defence-Wide Area Network (DWAN). In case of an emergency or breaking news, a red banner will be visible on the homepage and will redirect to a dedicated section on the website. Members will be able to obtain information on the current situation, points of contact, special instructions, timely updates, and other pertinent details.

A Base Emergency Information Line has also been installed to deliver any pertinent messages as well as updates. By simply calling 613-995-0133, any member of the Defence Team who does not have access to the Internet can call to hear an up-to-date pre-recorded message on the situation.

To conclude, if deemed necessary an email will be sent to all Defence Team members within the NCR via DWAN containing the relevant information.
