Thurston Community Alert
Thurston County Emergency Management in cooperation with participating cities, uses several methods to warn the public of hazardous situations within the county.
Some of the warnings we issue require community members to sign up to receive the messages, such as river flood alerts.
Over 80% of calls made to 9-1-1 come from mobile phones. When you dial 9-1-1 from a mobile phone, the 9-1-1 call takers have very little information to help you – only your phone number and a very general sense of your location.
With Smart911, you can provide 9-1-1 call takers and first responders critical information you want them to know in any kind of emergency.
