How can I sign up to be notified in case of emergencies or bad weather?
Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management, in coordination with the county’s 911 Call Centers including Southwest Snohomish County Communications Agency (SNOCOM) Dispatch Center, has opened public enrollment in the county’s AlertSense System.

The city and other emergency response providers use the alert system to warn people quickly when hazardous weather or other emergencies may affect the local area. Residents and businesses may elect to receive alerts by email or text message.

The alert system allows individuals without landline phone service to link their address and cell phone to receive notifications affecting their registered location. Emergency information is simultaneously posted on the website when an alert is issued. Those enrolled can receive a text message or email when they are away from home.

Sign up via the AlertSense System website.
