Flashing “warning” sign test scheduled for Tuesday, December 12

Flashing sign warning system testing

The City, in collaboration with local volunteer organization, North Bend Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES) Team, is continuing to troubleshoot a local flashing sign “warning” system in North Bend.

Please disregard flashing warning signs that you might see within city limits on Tuesday, December 12, 2023, as this is when testing will occur.

There are six flashing warning signs located in North Bend, and two located within the City of Snoqualmie. Currently, the broadcast system connected to each sign releases a specific radio signal that turns the lights on during an emergency. The frequency used to turn the flashing lights off following an emergency or a test sometimes fails. Troubleshooting will address this issue.

A great way to be prepared for local and regional emergencies is to sign up for the King County ALERT System. ALERT is a public information and emergency notification system that reaches citizens wherever they are and on any device. The City of North Bend encourages all residents to register for ALERT to receive important information about significant local events or emergency situations via telephone, text and email. Sign up by visiting www.kingcounty.gov/en/legacy/depts/emergency-management/alert-king-county

Should you have any questions or concerns about flashing warning signage, please contact Communications Manager Bre Keveren by phone, at (425) 888-7669 or by email, at bkeveren@northbendwa.gov
