Earlier this year, King County launched a new employee emergency alert system called “KCInform”. This system, powered by CodeRED, allows us to reach you by phone, text, and email with timely information in an emergency or natural disaster.
Your safety is our priority, whether you are at work or home, so having updated personal contact information (work cell phone and home phone, email, and/or cell phone) is critical for reaching you wherever you are.
In January you were emailed a personal profile link to enter your information into KCInform. Many of you registered – thank you! Now we plan to test the system’s notification process and give you an opportunity to see how emergency messages will look and sound when received by phone, text, and/or email.
A test of KCInform is scheduled for the afternoon of April 25.
Depending on the information you provided, you will receive a test message from CodeRED (the service provider for KCInform) on @kingcounty.gov email, County-issued desk or cell phones, and personal phones and email accounts if you added them to KCInform. The April 25 message is just a test.
If you have questions about KCInform, or haven’t yet registered personal contact or work cell information, please contact email@example.com or 206-296-3830 (between 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday – Friday) for assistance.
Thank you for your participation in this important system test.
