Since Monday, July 5, our neighbors to the west, near Cheney, have been dealing with the Andrus Fire. This fire has caused immediate evacuations of homes, Level 3 Evacuations, as well as Level 1 (Be Ready) and Level 2 (Be Set). How would you be notified of a public alert or warning notification?
Spokane County Emergency Management sponsors a notification system call ALERT Spokane. This system allows you to register for this notification system that alerts you to high-risk situations, like wildfire evacuations, but also law enforcement activities, etc. You can register and receive notifications over your landline or cellular phone, as well as email, text messages, VoIP phones, and TTD, TTY capable phones.
According to Spokane County Emergency Management, if you have already registered with ALERT Spokane prior to June 2017, you need to re-register.
