Each year, prior to the flood season, the Urban Drainage and Flood Control District will inform the news media of the flood hazard associated with Ralston Creek and its tributaries. The media will be requested to publicize the hazard and the details of this warning system, including steps occupants of the hazard area should take in the event that a flood warning is issued.

The District will also, on an annual basis, provide copies of the sample messages in Section IX to the broadcast media along with an explanation of their use.
