Delaware County residents can now get text messages on their phones to alert them of severe weather and other emergencies.
It’s through a new emergency alerting system called Alert Iowa – and Delaware County just went live with it last week.
Emergency Management Coordinator Mandy Bieber says messages may also be sent for such instances as crimes, public works disasters and search & rescues. And she says anyone can sign up – and for any area you’d like to follow too.
