Bruderheim residents can now report street light issues to FortisAlberta.
 
Through FortisAlberta, Bruderheim residents can zoom in on streetlights in their area with an online map.
 
"When you locate the one you're interested in reporting on, you click on it and it gives you the option of putting in a little bit of text and to click whether it needs a repair or if it's an emergency," explained mayor Karl Hauch.
 
The box will also say whether FortisAlberta already knows about an issue with the light.
 
"It's pretty cool actually," raved Hauch. "It's quite an easy way of reporting on a street light."
 
The program doesn't just apply to Bruderheim, FortisAlberta has opened it up to their entire service area, including Sturgeon County and Fort Saskatchewan.
 
In the case of an emergency, contact FortisAlberta through their emergency line at 310-WIRE (9473) or 1-866-717-3113.
 
The map can be found on FortisAlberta's website.
