Very bright cell tower lights

Johnny83001
Just Moved In
There is a cell tower NW of Red Deer, AB. I believe it is located at N52.3164 W113.6325. The last 2 nights the tower warning lights have been intensly bright. We can see 6 towers from our home and this one is many times brighter than the others and white rather than red. It is lighting up my daughters room and we live 5 or 6 miles away. A quick google search shows that they should have a reduced intensity at night. Who would I talk to on this?

Step 1, call telus mobility technical support and ask them to issue a repair request ticket for a safety issue at the tower.  Tell them the light is out and a hazard to air navigation or something.

 

The tower seems to be registered as Joffre 2 - NE 34-38-26 W4, Jof

Telus Uses a consulting firm called Land Solutions when soliciting for new tower locations and they likely have direct contact with the group building things.

I didn't have to call.
The tower now has red warning lights at night. Much better.
