Yakima County is implementing a new emergency notification system, for all citizens of Yakima County. The new system will allow the 911 Dispatch centers in Yakima County to notify residents in case of emergencies, such as fires, floods and severe weather. The new system has the capability to notify citizens through many pathways, including voice messaging to land line and cell phones, text messages, emails, fax and pagers. Citizens can register multiple phone numbers, emails and addresses, as well as special/functional needs.
Currently, the system has only land line phone numbers programmed in. If citizens want to be notified via other means, they will need to sign-up (Opt-in). Do so by clicking HERE
