Emergency Alert System

The City of Burien has joined the enhanced regional emergency alert system, ALERT King County. This powerful system enables the public to receive important information about significant events or emergency situations. The service is free and confidential and allows you to register home and work addresses for geographic-specific alerts sent to you by phone, text, and email. 

Once registered, you can edit your information as needed. Click the Modify button below and then click login in the upper right corner of that page. The system accepts multiple email accounts, phone numbers, and physical addresses. You can unsubscribe at any time.




How Does it Work?

Burien residents will only receive alerts targeted at them, based on the address they provide. The system will only be used by the City for major emergencies (make sure to uncheck the "General Notifications" box).

About ALERT King County

ALERT King County was officially launched by King County Office of Emergency Management in June 2016. This new public alert system complements, but does not replace, other existing public notification systems, such as Flood Alerts, Road Alerts, and Metro Transit Alerts.
