Sign up here for WENS/Alert Iowa Alerts! In the event of an emergency, an alert will be sent to the phone number(s) you provide and/or your email address.
This is a free service provided by Decatur County, however, normal message fees may apply. To receive text messages to your cell phone, your cell phone must have text messaging capabilities. Notifications are dependent upon external providers (phone carrier, cell phone, email). Decatur County cannot guarantee notifications will be received by the intended recipient. By registering below, you will not receive unsolicited calls, and neither Decatur County, nor its system vendor sells the contact number database.
In order to receive both text and voice alerts enter your cell phone number twice selecting the “text” option first and the “voice” option second.
You may sign up for more than one option in a group. If you live in one community but work in another, or you would prefer to receive alerts for the community in which your family members reside. Check as many boxes which apply to your situation.
Alerts sent from Decatur County Public Notification System will originate from 69310 for text messages and (641) 555-5555 for voice notifications. Please be sure to save these in your phone.
*Message and Data rates may apply.
*Text "HELP" to 69310 for help.
