Grays Harbor County Emergency Management has changed public alerting systems. Citizens who have previously signed up for notifications from Grays Harbor County Emergency Management will need to sign up for the new system in order to receive alerts via email, voice call and/ or text.

The new system is called Rave Alert/ Smart911. Benefits of this particular program includes targeted location-based alerts and important National Weather Service notifications to residents. Critical weather-related information, such as high winds, high surf advisories, flooding or tsunami warnings would be transmitted to citizens registered with Rave Alert/ Smart911.

Rave Alert/ Smart911 also allows Emergency Management to isolate a geographic area in the county for specific notifications, which could include local evacuations, boil water notices, shelter-in-place instructions or other emergencies impacting a specific area of Grays Harbor.

It’s important to provide accurate information, when you sign up you’ll be asked to provide an address, which the system will assume is where you are when you receive those location-based alerts. You can also provide multiple addresses.

Please take a few moments to sign up for Rave Alert/ Smart911. Registering in this new system is also a great time to update your current information, email address and phone number.
