The City of Puyallup's Emergency Management Office constantly updates its list of residents who would need assistance in the event of an emergency (e.g. natural disaster).
This is a City program where citizens with unique conditions at their home (elderly person, chronic illness, mobility challenges, and/or language barriers) can have their information added to the City's dispatch system so that it is immediately available to the 9-1-1 Telecommunicator when a 9-1-1 call is placed.
Puyallup Alert (Reverse 9-1-1)
This is the City system that can place automated calls to residents, advising them of evolving situations, such as the need to shelter in place, missing persons, or localized flooding. The system can handle about 300 calls per hour. The system picks up the numbers from the listed land line telephone book. Persons with unlisted numbers, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), or exclusive use of cell phones who would like to be included should complete the form.
