Emergencies and activations of the King County Emergency Coordination Center/Joint Information Center
During a significant incident (e.g. flood, wind storm) public messaging is coordinated through our Joint Information Center.
During emergencies and significant events impacting the King County region, we post public information updates and safety directives on our regional emergency news blog: www.kcemergency.com . Feel free to link to it as a centralized hub for up-to-date information. We direct residents and media to it from our social media accounts and news releases.
Residents are urged to register for regional public alerts at ALERT King County (www.kingcounty.gov/ALERTkingcounty). This site includes links to other regional alerts (i.e. flood, road, metro). Winter preparedness tips and checklists can be found at www.TakeWinterByStorm.org.
