eSpotter Online Access Request

The use of the system is currently intended for trained spotters and Emergency Managers. If you live in an area covered by the eSpotter system, you can register to request access to the eSpotter system.

The system is available for transmission of non-critical, non-time-sensitive information that does not pose an immediate danger to life and property. It is very important to have a readily available backup communication method for relaying reports. Relay reports with critical, time-sensitive and life-saving information through your regular communication methods first.

Forgotten Your Password?

If you have forgotten your password, you can get it here. It will be reset and the new password will be eMailed to you.

Note: If you have problems with your password it may be due to it being reset.

Now that we have logged into the eSpotter system, lets take a look at the Main Menu. The Main Menu will look similar to the graphic below.
