Volunteer alerts mailing list

About Safe Wings Alerts

The Safe Wings Alerts mailing list is how we let volunteers know when we need a driver or help with a rescue.

We also use this list on occasion to send out important messages — for example, if we need help patrolling because it's a big migration day.

This is a closed, hidden list; only Safe Wings volunteers can subscribe, and only certain volunteers can post without a moderator first approving the message.

The frequency of messages depends on how many calls we get requiring someone to pick up or rescue a bird, which is rarely more than one a day. We try to be specific in the subject, e.g. "Driver needed downtown" or "Rescuer needed: Orleans" so you can quickly decide whether the message is relevant to you.

If you are a registered Safe Wings volunteer but prefer not to receive these alerts, you can unsubscribe from alerts@safewings.ca, but will still receive occasional volunteer updates via MailChimp.

Please add "alerts@safewings.ca" to your email contacts list to reduce the chances of our messages getting caught in spam filters.

To see earlier postings to the list, visit the Safe Wings Alerts Archives (only accessible to current members).

Using Safe Wings Alerts
To post a message to all the list members, send an email to alerts@safewings.ca.

Please be specific in the subject, e.g. "Driver needed downtown," "Rescue help needed in Orleans", or "Birds on move today — please patrol." This allows recipients to quickly decide whether the message is of interest to them.

You may wish to include your cell number if you prefer replies by phone or text message. Once your request is met, considering sending a quick note to let others know that the matter is resolved.

You can subscribe to the list, or change your existing subscription, in the sections below.
