The department's Public Information Officer
uses the following statewide and regional e-mail lists to distribute
information to the public and media services for all Districts in Washington
There are two (2) types of media lists. Each list type is explained below followed by an example in Adobe Acrobat PDF format.
A WSP media release is a traditional press release, with letterhead and contact information, written in order
to highlight an important event, program, or piece of information.
A WSP press memo is information written in block style, supplied to the news media from WSP Communications about a specific collision. NOTE: Press Memos are sent much more frequently than Media Releases.
Feel free to revise your subscriptions if you are receiving unwanted Press Memos.
To subscribe to one or more of the lists below, send an email to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
In the body of the email, type "subscribe," followed by the list name. Optionally, you can add your first and last name after the email address.
Example: subscribe D1-ALL-MEDIA John Doe
To subscribe to multiple lists, type a subscribe command for each list on its own line.
Note: Listserv does not require a subject line for the email, but some email systems may drop messages with no subject as an anti-spam measure. Adding a subject line (such as "List Request") will help ensure delivery of your email.
There are three (3) alert lists as well:
Subscribers to the Washington State AMBER-ALERT list will receive all AMBER alerts issued within Washington State. All AMBER alerts are statewide by default. By subscribing to this list you will receive an email with all information, photos and maps available about the incident.
Endangered Missing Persons Advisories can be sent statewide or regionally. By subscribing to this list you will receive ALL EMPA’s issued within Washington State to include any photographs or maps available. There is currently no way to geographically target email lists based on incident location.
Silver Alerts are issued for anyone 60 and over and suffering from dementia. The alerts will be issued as Endangered Missing Persons Advisories but will have the Silver Alert designation within the description.
Unsubscribing from a List:
To unsubscribe from a list, simply send an email to email@example.com with the word "signoff" followed by the list name in the body of the email.
If you have any questions concerning our ListServ or subscribing to any of the lists provided, please submit them to our WSP List Manager.
