City of North Bend Urges Residents to Sign Up for Emergency Notifications

Alert King County

Many people no longer use or even have landline phones, making reverse 911 emergency alert calls virtually obsolete. 

In 2016, King County launched a new emergency alert system that reaches citizens wherever they are and on any device. City of North Bend encourages all North Bend residents to register for King County Alert to receive important information about significant local events or emergency situations via telephone, text and email. 

Alert can also be used to notify residents of situations such as evacuations, floods, road alerts or a chemical release. Residents may enter their home and work addresses for geographic-specific alerts. Registration is free and confidential.

To sign up for ALERT, visit www.kingcounty.gov/ALERTKingCounty and click “Subscribe.”

Signing up for the new alert system is just one important step in preparing for emergencies. Other steps include:

-         Making a plan for you and your family that encompasses different emergency situations, such as flooding, wildfires or an earthquake.

-         Building an emergency supply kit for your home and car.

-         Creating an emergency plan for your place of employment and offering training for staff.
