An Aero Methow Rescue Service Program


Hayley Riach

One of the biggest needs when there is an impending or active threat or disaster is to stay informed.

Since Methow Ready's mission is assisting with community readiness prior to events occurring, we defer to others to provide up-to-the-minute information during disasters and emergencies. This is to avoid duplication of efforts.  MethowReady's Facebook page, along with this website, is a great place for ongoing general information, but for up-to-the minute status updates during disasters, see the below list of resources.

List of Informational Resources for Updates during Disasters & Emergencies:

  1. Okanogan County's Emergency Operations Center, activated and staffed 24-7 during times of disasters, Tel. 509-422-7348.
  2. Okanogan Citizen Alert System (you need to sign up ahead of time to get notifications via cell phone, text, etc.) 
  3. Public Information Officer, stationed at Aero Methow, during fires and other disasters. You can stop in or call 509-997-4013.
  4. Incident Information System, where one can sign up for a daily email notification in addition to getting information over the phone on wildland fires.

Facebook Pages:

A word about Facebook pages: There has been a transition over the last few years away from using organizational websites as a place to update people to using Facebook pages. This is due to the fact that information can be so easily passed on or “shared” with others using Facebook. Please note that you do not have to have a Facebook page yourself in order to access information on most Facebook pages. Some of the below Facebook pages are associated with organizations, and others were created by community members. Use your judgment in analyzing the quality of information. The sites in bold are great go-to sites for immediate information.
