New notification system aims to reach employees in emergencies

KCInform-colorKing County has just launched a new employee emergency notification system called KCInform to help reach employees with important information in the event of an emergency or natural disaster.

On January 31, employees should have received an email from noreply@codered.com inviting them to register their personal contact information into KCInform. If you had problems accessing the sign-in page, please try again.

“To ensure you don’t miss critical, time-sensitive messages, I am asking you, and all employees, to enter your contact information in KCInform so that you can be contacted in an emergency,” King County Executive Dow Constantine said in a message to employees.

KCInform will only be used in emergency or severe weather situations to give employees the information they need about building closures, changes in departmental operations, and other significant impacts.

Employees’ personal contact information will remain secure and is protected from public disclosure requests under state law.

Registering your personal contact information is voluntary but employees with County-issued cell phones are asked to enter that number into KCInform. You will still need to register your personal contact information with KCInform even if you have previously entered this information in PeopleSoft.

You can learn more about KCInform on this Frequently Asked Questions webpage. If you have other questions or did not receive a registration email, please contact the Office of Emergency Management at KCInform@kingcounty.gov or 206-296-3830.
