A Realty Watch fan-out is a simultaneous text messaging of REALTORS® across the Lower Mainland.
If you or someone you know thinks that a Realty Watch fan-out may help find a missing family member or friend, you need to contact the police in your jurisdiction.
REALTOR® fan-outs are for emergencies involving immediacy — they are only activated within hours to a maximum of a few days of someone being reported lost or missing.
Only police can determine if a Realty Watch fan-out is an appropriate response.
REALTORS® receive fan-out requests from police for these reasons:
Realty Watch receives on average more than 30 fan-out requests each year.
If REALTORS® see or hear anything that could assist police with the fan-out, they call 911. They remain on the lookout until they receive notice the fan-out has been cancelled, usually within 24 hours.
The Realty Watch fan-out network is active throughout British Columbia’s Lower Mainland and includes Greater Vancouver, the Sunshine Coast, Gulf Islands, Whistler and surrounding areas, Fraser Valley and Chilliwack and district.
