MONTESANO, Wash. - Grays Harbor County Emergency Management will be testing the County Wide Disaster Notification System on Tuesday, October 22nd at 10:30am. The notifications will go out to all who have voluntarily signed up for the notifications. To date over 6,500 Grays Harbor County Citizens have been added to our system.

The associated phone number with the phone call will be (360) 249-3911. Newer additions will be added following the system test.

If you believe you are in the system and do not receive a call, text or e-mail, it could be as a result of many issues such as new phone number or e-mail address.
