Voice of Vashon’s Alert System gives you the information you need when an emergency strikes the island. Power outages. Storm warnings. Earthquakes. Road closures. Even disruptions in ferry service. Our volunteer crew is on the job 24-7, monitoring regional information sources, posting bulletins and taking to the airwaves to let you know what’s happening on Vashon and what you need to do to take care of yourself and your family.

“I’d like to thank Voice of Vashon for keeping the island informed and up to date with important news and other information. You’ve saved me from waiting on a canceled PO Boat, driving on a closed road and helped me be prepared for inclimate weather more times than I can count!” ~ Grace
