    Ready in Renton
    New Notification Services

    Earthquakes, severe storms, power outages, fires and floods are just some of the emergencies that may be experienced.  Ready in Renton, a city-wide campaign, works to provide you with information and resources to help you be better prepared to take care of yourself and those that depend on you in an emergency.

    Beginning in September, during Ready in Renton month, the City of Renton is expanding its emergency notification capabilities. The new service is called Renton RedAlert. With RedAlert the city can contact you immediately and send you critical messages by phone or TDD, text or email. It is very important that you provide your contact information to receive critical information about emergencies that may affect you and the quick actions you should take for your own safety and the safety of those you love. Although the city has some telephone numbers in its database from other sources, a significant number people don’t rely on landline telephone for communications. They use a cell phone instead. This creates a problem when issuing alerts because the city does not have most cell phone numbers in its database.  

    To encourage more people to sign-up for Renton RedAlert and to connect with the city on social media, the city also has an online promotion as part of Ready in Renton. Once you have signed up for RentonRedAlert, let us know that you have signed up by visiting us on Twitter at @RentonEM and use the hashtag #RentonRedAlert. You will be entered into a drawing to win a disaster kit. If you do not have internet access you may call 425-430-7053 to have staff assist you in registering for RentonRedAlertRead moreClick here to sign up.
