Neighborhood Information Centers

If normal communications methods, like phones or internet, are disrupted during an emergency, critical information may be posted at these information centers to assist residents.

Neighborhood information centers can be found at front entrance of most public schools in the Renton School District that are located within city limits, as well as the Maplewood Golf Course.

Find your closest Neighborhood Information Center and know how to get there in case you need to access information during an emergency.


The Neighborhood Information Center service is offered in partnership with the Renton School District and Renton Emergency Communication Service. See a downloadable version of the map.
