The Emergency Alert System (EAS) is the national public warning system that provides the public with critical emergency and disaster alerts. The system is also used by state and local authorities to deliver important information targeted to a specific region.
The public is encouraged to visit the Washington State Emergency Management Division website to sign up for local emergency alerts and notifications.
Additionally, the public can visit the National Weather Service website to sign up for email and SMS alerts.
Signing up takes a few minutes and plays an important role in emergency preparedness planning.
