Puyallup Alerts is an emergency alert software that includes text, phone, and email notifications for the mass dissemination of critical messages. Using the software, the City of Puyallup can send life safety information quickly and efficiently to residents via voice and text alerts. To receive alerts, residents will need to opt in by signing up on the City’s website. Once enrolled, residents can control how they would like to be alerted, either via text, phone, or email.
Puyallup Alerts will primarily be used for emergencies, which involve incidents where life safety is at risk. But the alert system will also be used sparingly for specific non-emergency situations, such as a missing person, traffic congestion, and extreme weather notifications.
