Marion Alert Emergency Notification System - Sign-up Now


I am happy to announce that the Marion Alert Emergency Notification System (part of the Alert Iowa statewide system) is ready for use.  Because this is a new service (Marion County has never had a mass notification system, or reverse 911, such as Code Red or Everbridge), I am asking you to share this information widely.  Help us get as many Marion County residents signed up as possible!  Marion Alert is a great addition to your family/business preparedness toolbox, and will allow public safety officials to communicate local emergency information to you. 

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. More than 80 percent of Iowa's counties have now signed up to use the Alert Iowa system.

Alert Iowa will allow citizens to sign up for the types of alerts they would like to receive. Messages can be issued via landline or wireless phone, text messaging, email, FAX, TDD/TYY, and social media. Messages may contain photo, video and audio attachments to help subscribers better understand the situation at hand, or where to find additional information.

To register on the Marion Alert Emergency Notification System, please go to http://entry.inspironlogistics.com/marion_ia/wens.cfm

For more information regarding the Alert Iowa program, including a video that explains the system, go to http://homelandsecurity.iowa.gov/about_HSEMD/alert_iowa.html

If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Marion County Emergency Management at 641-828-2256, or by email atjanderson@co.marion.ia.us

Thank you for your assistance in sharing this information.  Again, please share this information widely and encourage your friends and family to register for Marion Alert.
