Island Emergency Alert Email Service

Voice of Vashon has launched an email service, dedicated to keeping people informed, comfortable and safe. It’s a major addition to the Voice of Vashon Island Emergency Alert Service and it was created with support from partners VashonBePrepared and Vashon Island Fire and Rescue.

The service pools emergency information into a single source of email notices on power outages, storms, ferry disruptions and even worse emergencies that we hope our Island community never faces.

Should a disaster strike though, VoV will work around the clock to provide vital information: Have emergency shelters been set up? How can you access medical aid? What about potable water, food and other critical supplies?

For more than seven years, Voice of Vashon’s Emergency Alert Team volunteers on 1650AM have kept the Island informed during emergencies, from road closures to searches for missing persons.

The service has been so successful that the Fire District asked the Emergency Alert Team to staff the Public Information desk in Vashon’s Emergency Operations center. The VashonBePrepared Board of Directors recently joined the effort by voting to consolidate email lists with Voice of Vashon.

VoV has merged the Voice of Vashon and VashonBePrepared email lists to create a new list for Vashon’s Emergency Alert System. We call it a system because you can also receive alerts on 1650AM,,, Voice of Vashon’s Facebook page and on the free VoV smartphone app.

Islanders are encouraged to take advantage of this important service by signing up today to receive emergency alerts by email. If you receive emails from Voice of Vashon or VashonBePrepared, you are already signed up.
