October 31: Test of KCInform employee alert system

King County will test KCInform, our employee emergency notification system, on the morning of Tuesday, October 31. This system allows us to reach County employees by phone, text, and email with timely information in an emergency or natural disaster to keep you, your co-workers, and your customers safe.  

In January this year you received an email from noreply@codered.com asking you to register your personal contact information (work cell phone and home phone, email, and/or cell phone) into KCInform (CodeRed is the platform we use to manage KCInform). New employees have received subsequent invitations to register in KCInform.  

As we enter storm season and get ready for winter weather, we are testing the system’s notification process and giving you an opportunity to see how emergency messages will look and sound when received by phone, text, and/or email.  

Depending on the information you entered in KCInform, 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.  

The October 31 message is just a test 

If you haven’t yet registered personal contact or work cell information into KCInform, please contact kcinform@kingcounty.gov or 206-296-3830 (between 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday – Friday) to request your unique registration link. Watch this short video to learn more or visit our website
