Week 1 Preparedness Emphasis Month
If you have a computer or cell phone:
Sign up for Clallam County Alerts . Here
Download the CodeRed app for your cell phone.  Go to the “applications icon or app store” on your phone and download the app (it’s free). 
Radio station:
Did you know that our local emergency information radio station is KSQM 91.5 FM ?  KSQM is part of Clallam County Command Area 5 (Fire District 3) public information system. KSQM will broadcast information as it becomes available, such as cause of the event (e.g. major power grid failure), extent of the outage/emergency, expected restoration of services, and any emergency instructions. 
(Remember, if electrical power is out, your electrically powered radio, TV, computer & possibly your cell phone service will not be working. It is recommended that you have a battery operated  &/or hand-crank radio in your emergency supplies.) 
Check it out on Amazon.com . Just click on the radio above.  We like this radio because it is digital (easy to read and to set the station), has NOAA Weather Radio/Alerts, and has the ability to be solar charged (build in) as well as a hand crank to charge the batteries.  It can also charge your phone with a usb connection, and has LED lights.  Good all around emergency radio.  There are others out there but for the price, this had it all.
