Wahkiakum County has implemented an emergency community warning system that is able to send emergency messages via telephone, cellular phone, and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) to residents and businesses within the county. This system may be used by emergency response personnel to notify specific homes and businesses at risk with specific information about the emergency event. You will only be called when the associated address will be affected by an emergency.
The system is already programmed with landline phone numbers (both listed and unlisted) from phone company records. HOWEVER, it cannot contact your cellular phone, VoIP phone or email address unless you give us your contact information and your permission. To ensure that you receive these warnings you will need to register the telephone numbers for your cellular phone, and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone..
If the call is picked up by an answering machine it will leave a message and not retry the call. If the number is busy or does not answer, the system will make two additional attempts. Also, this system can contact TTY/TDD devices used by the deaf and hard-of-hearing community.
Common reasons to sign up:
- Receive emergency information affecting your home
- Receive emergency information for locations other than your home (like your business or another family member that you care for)
Type of information you may receive:
- Police needing your help to solve crimes or find missing persons
- Knowledge about a hazardous situation near your home (fire, hazardous materials release, or police response activities)
- Emergency protective measures during a disaster
