How will I be notified of an evacuation?

For immediate evacuations, the fire department/police officers will go door to door to notify residents to evacuate.

We will also use our Emergency Notification System to call homes in the area to notify them of the evacuation.  The system already has all landline phone numbers in it, if you would like to register your cell phone you will need to sign up at Alert Yakima.  Be sure to put in your address so when we map the evacuation area message your phone number is captured.
