NotifyJoCo will be tested March 4

As a part of Severe Weather Awareness Week, the county will not only be testing its outdoor siren system at 10 a.m. today, but the county's emergency notification system, NotifyJoCo, will also be tested. Those messages will be sent via email, text message or by phone, depending upon the options those who have opted in to the system have chosen. There are also nearly 193,000 landline numbers from the county's 911 emergency database who will be contacted by NotifyJoCo. 

It’s the ideal time to sign up for emergency alerts from NotifyJoCo or update information in the system. Those who are in the system prior to 10 a.m. will be able to participate in the test. 

Anyone with an interest in Johnson County can sign up for NotifyJoCo alerts using one of three easy ways:

  1. Text NOTIFYJOCO (all one word) to 888777 to instantly register for countywide alerts via text message to a mobile device. Standard text messaging rates will apply.
  2. Go to notifyjoco.org and customize alerts for up to five designated locations and select the preferred communication methods (phone, text, email). Users can also opt-in for a variety of non-emergency messages.
  3. Call 913-826-5555 to register for alerts.
