If you are registered to receive public alert notifications with Grays Harbor Emergency Management and want to continue getting them, you are going to have to sign up again.

The agency has changed public alerting systems. You will need to sign up for the new system in order to continue receiving alerts via email, voice call and/or text.

The new system is called Rave Alert/Smart911. According to Emergency Management, benefits of this particular program include targeted location-based alerts and important National Weather Service notifications. 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.

Registering in this new system is also a chance to update your current information, email address and phone number.

To register, visit www. smart911.com/smart911/ ref/reg.action?pa=grays harbor.
