Welcome to Spokane County
Welcome to Spokane County, Washington where you’ll find an easy, come-as-you-are blend of urban amenities and small-town hospitality. It’s the kind of place where you can enjoy live performances in downtown Spokane’s arts district or explore the autumn beauty of family-owned orchards in Greenbluff.
Spokane County is centrally located among the four counties that share the Washington-Idaho border and we serve an important role as the region’s retail trade and services hub. This role extends from health care to business and finance, to manufacturing, services, agriculture and much, much more.
On our website, you’ll find information about county government, services and projects; but it’s also your gateway to a region that’s known for crisp mornings along the river, sunny lunch-time strolls, and clear starry nights…this place we call home, the beautiful and vibrant heart of the Inland Northwest – Spokane County.

ALERT Spokane–The Spokane County Emergency Notification System
A Public Safety Message from the Spokane County Commissioners
How will you be notified if there’s an emergency in your neighborhood? Through ALERT Spokane – a Spokane County emergency notification system!
ALERT Spokane is used to inform citizens about emergencies in their area. The ALERT Spokane system can be activated by law enforcement, fire service, water districts, etc. Once activated, a recorded message is sent to landline telephones with information about the emergency and what actions to take. For example, if there’s a wild fire in your area, you might be told to evacuate.
It’s important to note that the recorded message will be sent to landline telephones in the affected area. If you have discontinued your landline telephone service and are relying on a cell phone or VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) phone, you will not receive an emergency message from ALERT Spokane – unless you register your cell phone in the system! Even if you still have a landline telephone, it’s a good idea to register your cell phone with ALERT Spokane.
In the interest of public safety, the Spokane County Board of Commissioners is urging the public to register their cell phones and VoIP phones (Comcast, Vonage, XO Communications, etc.) with ALERT Spokane. It’s easy to do. Just go to www.alertspokane.org and enter the information. You can also register more than one cell or VoIP phone number.
Be informed – stay safe – register with ALERT Spokane TODAY at www.alertspokane.org!
