Launched in September 2008, the City of Issaquah's radio station, 1700 AM, offers a way for officials to easily broadcast messages to the public during emergencies or major road incidents.
In addition, when the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) issues an all-hazards alert for our area, 1700 AM will automatically switch from its programming to the NOAA alert. The same will also occur for Amber Alerts.
During non-emergency periods, listeners are encouraged to tune in to 1700 AM to hear about what's new in Issaquah. The station will be used to keep citizens updated on everything from urgent traffic updates to parking locations during the Issaquah Salmon Days Festival.
