Preparing for winter weather in Mountlake Terrace – Part 1

Rain, snow, wind – winter can bring severe and challenging weather; it’s best to be prepared before conditions become difficult. This is the first in a four-part series on preparing and coping with winter weather in Mountlake Terrace.

The City of Mountlake Terrace is encouraging residents and local businesses to sign up for free, up-to-date emergency weather notifications via home phone, cell phone, e-mail or text messaging through an emergency management alert system.

The Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management, in coordination with the county’s 911 Call Centers — including SNOCOM Dispatch Center — opened public enrollment in the county’s MyStateUSA Alert Sense System in 2011. The city and other emergency response providers use the alert system to warn people quickly when hazardous weather or other emergencies may affect the local area.

You can sign up for the emergency notifications here. The alert system allows individuals without landline phone service to link their address and cell phone to receive notifications affecting their registered location. Emergency information is simultaneously posted on the website when an alert is issued.
