Sign up for the hyper-reach reverse 911 system

Every child is taught to dial 911 in case of an emergency, but what happens if the county needs to get a hold of you during a natural disaster? This is where the Pacific County Hyper-Reach Reverse 911 System comes into play.

The hyper-reach system was developed and implemented as a way to make contact with people in large groups during an emergency like a tornado, or earthquake.

Inslee issues update to vaccine requirement proclamation

Inslee issues update to vaccine requirement proclamation

Gov. Jay Inslee amended the vaccination requirement proclamation 21-14 to address potentially life-threatening circumstances in 24/7 facilities."24/7 facilities" provide care to individuals, and include, but are not limited to, acute care, long-term care, corrections, rehabilitation and behavioral health in-patient facilities. The action took place last Wednesday.

The amendment allows these facilities to use the services of contractors whose full vaccination status has not been verified in very narrow and limited circumstances. Those circumstances are emergent events or conditions that are unanticipated, discrete, temporary, and likely to result in death or serious bodily harm if the contractors' prompt actions are not taken.

Examples of such emergent events and conditions include, but are not limited to, fires, floods, or other natural disasters, inoperable security door and camera controls, and riot or hostage situations.

The amendment also requires that facility leadership must first make reasonable efforts to engage contractors whose vaccination status is verified, and must, within a reasonable time of the event, document that the circumstances met this narrow and limited exception. In addition, any such response by an unverified contractor must be limited to the duration and scope necessary to address the emergent event.
