Emergency Alerts

Enhanced Alert System King County Alert

The City of Redmond has joined the enhanced regional emergency alert system, ALERT King County. This powerful system enables the public to receive important information about significant events or emergency situations. The service is free and confidential and allows you to register home and work addresses for geographic-specific alerts sent to you by phone, text, and email. For example, the system could be used to notify you on your registered cell phone if your address is affected by a drinking water emergency.


Subscribe to the Alert King County today! 

Once registered, you can edit your information as needed. Select modify your account and then log in in the upper right corner of that page. The system accepts multiple email accounts, phone numbers, and physical addresses. 

You may also unsubscribe at any time.


ALERT King County was officially launched by King County Office of Emergency Management in June 2016. This new public alert system complements but does not replace, other existing public notification systems, such as Flood Alerts, Road Alerts, and Metro Transit Alerts. See King County ALERTS for more information about other types of alerts in the county.


Washington State Law (RCW 38.52.577) protects information you provide from public inspection and copying.

Subscribers to our former system (AlertSense) will need to register with ALERT King County (CodeRED) to continue receiving public emergency alerts. You can visit the old page to update your AlertSense profile, which may include severe weather alerts from the National Weather Service.
