Whatcom Unified AlertSense Messages

Sign up to receive emergency alerts and severe weather warnings that could directly impact you and your family.

Whenever a significant incident occurs in Whatcom County, Whatcom Unified Emergency Management uses various methods to notify the media and the public. One of those methods is a messaging system called AlertSense.

AlertSense allows us to send a message to an email address, as a text message to a phone, and/or as a voice message to a phone. We also have the ability to send a message to everyone registered in the system, or we can target the message to only those who have registered to receive messages for specific geographic areas (i.e. cities, towns or communities).

Please provide your preferred method(s) of contact and the zones that you would like to be included for alerts or notfications.  Adding your address will allow tailoring so you do not receive alerts that don’t pertain to your geographical area. 

These alerts are provided free of charge, however standard text messaging rates and other charges may apply.
