The Community Communication Network (CCN) is a partnership between Public Health – Seattle & King County (Public Health), community and faith based organizations, and community leaders to ensure essential, and potentially, lifesaving information reaches all populations in King County. We know that groups impacted by inequities on a daily basis are at greater risk of significant impact during and after emergencies and we need your help in assuring critical information is shared quickly, and in a manner that is accessible, with your staff, your clients and your community.
After hours contact information should be provided for at least the PRIMARY contact but preferably at least two. Each agency will need to develop a strategy of how information is shared internally to staff and externally to clients.
Health Alerts and Health Advisories are sent as needed. CCN email updates are sent periodically and include links to grant resources, service information and other relevant material. During an emergency, messages will be sent more frequently, depending on the scenario.
It is preferred that several contacts from each organization are enrolled. Organizations will have a Primary Contact who will have “administrative rights” to the system. This means that the Primary Contact can monitor who from the agency is enrolled in the network and makes changes or updates as needed.
If translated material, such as flyers or videos, are available, it will be made available.
If you are the Primary Contact for your organization, please work with your employer to identify someone to replace you in that role. If you are no longer associated with an organization, please change your account information to reflect your updated contact information.
Yes! Please consider enrolling in Alert King County and AlertSeattle to receive additional real-time emergency information that will help keep your staff, community and family connected and safe. While some information may overlap, there are different benefits to each system. Alert King County allows you to register physical addresses, such as home and work, to get messages targeted to your specific area. In addition to email, voice and text alerts, AlertSeattle allows you to customize alerts via social media (Facebook and Twitter) to easily repost and share with your community.
