Alert Iowa Weather Update-Includes NWS Link to Show Towns Impacted

Inspiron Logistics has updated their weather alerts. When a weather alert is received on someone’s phone in addition to the usual text an URL link will now be embedded in the message. If the URL is clicked on, a web browser message will appear that will show the entire script from the National Weather Service. This will include the towns impacted and potential impacts of the storm. This will provide a lot more detail to residents. Rather than just receiving an alert that says their county is impacted and not knowing what the impacts might be or if their town is going to be hit. 

Now is the time for residents to sign up for emergency alerts if they have not done so previously. Please visit the Jasper County Emergency Management Agency’s website at www.jasperema-hls.org and click on the Alert Iowa button in the top right hand corner of the homepage. You can also type in the link below to register.

 

Sign up for emergency alerts for Jasper County.
Messages can be issued via landline or wireless phone, text messaging, email, FAX, TDD/TTY, and social media.
