Read This Before You Attend Torchlight, Not AT Torchlight

The Alaska Airlines Seafair Torchlight Parade is Saturday, and if last year’s Torchlight Parade is a barometer, our region’s privately-owned cellular networks may become taxed by throngs of cell-phone wielding revelers.

If you’re unable to reach our 911 Call Center in the event your cell phone provider’s network becomes bogged down by a flood of phone calls, tweets and Facebook updates from Torchlight, you can still access emergency services at the parade. Simply locate one the many uniformed police officers or other public safety personnel working along the parade route and ask for assistance.

If you plan on attending Torchlight, you can help keep networks moving smoothly by limiting your phone calls and social media use at the parade and using texts to communicate with friends and family.

Everything else you’ll need to know about Seafair and the Torchlight Parade has been conveniently compiled for your perusal here.
