5 Reasons Community Groups Use ePACT

ePACT supports a number of community groups across North America, including the District of Squamish, the Communities of Haida Gwaii, the Ride to Conquer Cancer, and Girl Guides of Canada. These organizations support large groups of residents and participants and enjoy a wide range of benefits in using ePACT’s secure, online network. Here are five reasons why community groups use ePACT:

Community Engagement

ePACT lets families create a single emergency record to securely store critical information like contact details or special requirements in a crisis. They invite friends and relatives to connect and be their support network, and can also connect and share their record with trusted organizations.

This allows families to receive support in an emergency without worrying about paper forms or worrying that their information isn’t easily accessible to the right people in an emergency. As families own and control their ePACT accounts and the information contained within them, they control who they share their record with and have peace of mind that only authorized organizations and groups have access to their data.

Redundant Communications

Many community organizations rely on outdated or inefficient/ineffective means of communication to share key information with residents or participants – processes like phone trees, door-to-door notifications, and social media messaging can mean that families and individuals miss out on critical information and updates when they need them the most.

ePACT’s robust communication tools allow community organizations to communicate before, during, and after a crisis, helping individuals, families, and entire groups of people better prepare for, and respond to, emergencies. ePACT provides voice, text, and email messaging options, as well as two-way messaging that can be used to monitor responses from staff and support teams.

Improved Access To Information

When organizations use ePACT, they have access to critical information that might not always be available or might be collected on paper forms that can easily be lost or misplaced, and are often illegible or incomplete. With ePACT, community groups can collect specialized information that allows them to better support the families they serve like support needs in an evacuation or specific details about medication administration.

ePACT’s Mobile App allows authorized users to securely access records for residents or participants, even if they don’t have cellular or internet connection! Authorized users can access records to view critical information like emergency contact details and important medical conditions. They can also send general and emergency messages to specific groups or to all members of an organization at once, as well as emergency contacts.

Private & Secure

ePACT meets or exceeds the security standards of online banks, is compliant with Federal and Provincial privacy legislation, and all data is hosted and backed-up in Canada.

ePACT uses a secure socket layer (SSL) connection which also provides up to 256-bit encrypted security so that personal information sent over the internet remains confidential, and, once in the system, health information is protected from unauthorized access. And ePACT will never share information with third parties or other organizations without the consent of the account holder.

Quick & Easy Setup

ePACT is a cloud-based system which means that there is no added hardware or software needed. Setup and training take no time because ePACT’s interface is extremely easy to use. Organizations can be up and running right away and never have to worry about complex processes in the midst of an emergency.


ePACT better connects and protects your entire community, building personal support networks for families connecting to friends, relatives, and organizations, while significantly improving preparedness and response capabilities of organizations. Want to learn more about ePACT?
