Sign up for Emergency Alert Notifications with AlertSpokane CodeRed

Alert Spokane

During emergencies and disasters, it's crucial for residents to stay in the loop about evolving situations. Local authorities will use multiple communication channels to reach the public, such as radio, television, social media, print media, email, phone, text and more.

ALERT Spokane is the program behind the public alert and warning messages that are disseminated throughout the greater Spokane area. This mass notification system is called CodeRED, which distributes emergency notifications via landline, cellular phone and/or Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phones. It can also notify via text / SMS, TTD, TTY and email.

You may receive an alert message if emergency response personnel need to notify specific neighborhoods or areas about high-risk/evolving situations. Specific information about the emergency event may be provided, and some notifications may or may not directly impact you. This information is for the benefit of the general public and both businesses and residences located within the greater Spokane region.

Current fire evacuation notices can be found on the Spokane County Evacuation Zone Lookup website.
