It's been all over the news that we're in the middle of a drought in the Mid-Columbia. This has been a super dry spring. When fires start, you'll want to know right away and these alerts will be extremely helpful. Here's hoping that 2021 doesn't give us smoke so heavy that we can barely see the Blue Bridge again! That's was crazy!

Code Red alerts keep you informed by email, text, social media or even by phone. The alerts will inform you of emergencies like fire or flood, power outage or chemical spill. Also, non-emergency info that really helps plan your day like road closures, etc. Sign up and you choose which alerts you want to receive.
