Alert Iowa is a statewide mass notification and emergency messaging system. The system can be used by state and local authorities to quickly disseminate emergency information to residents in counties that utilize the system. The system is available, free of charge, to all counties.
Alert Iowa will allow citizens to sign up for the types of alerts they would like to receive. The best way to receive messages is via text message. Messages may contain photo, video and audio attachments to help subscribers better understand the situation at hand, or where to find additional information.
Sign up your landline and cellular phones for emergency notifications so that state and local authorities can quickly pass on emergency information and alerts to you by voice, text and/or email.
Notice: This system replaces CodeRed so if you were previously enrolled in CodeRed you will need to sign up with Alert Iowa to continue to receive emergency notifications.
