How to sign up for alerts

The Seattle Alerts blog brings together emergency communications from all of the City of Seattle’s departments. There are a few ways to follow updates to the blog–no need to click “refresh” until a snowstorm hits.


RSS is a method for distributing content to a group of subscribers. Many browsers and email clients can display RSS feeds, and so can a number of other tools.
