Scheduled Test for Flashing Warning Signs on March 12th in North Bend

The City is teaming up with the North Bend Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES) Team to fix issues with the flashing warning sign system in North Bend.

On Tuesday, March 12, 2024, from 2 to 4 p.m., residents might notice these signs flashing within the city limits. This is just a test, so there’s no need to worry.

Six flashing warning signs are in North Bend, and two more in the City of Snoqualmie. These signs are part of a system that uses a radio signal to activate emergency lights. However, turning the lights off after an emergency or test doesn’t always work correctly. The upcoming troubleshooting aims to fix this problem.

Signing up for the King County ALERT System is an excellent way for residents to stay prepared for emergencies. This system sends important information about emergencies or significant local events through phone calls, texts, and emails. You can register for this service at
