The Adams County Office of Emergency Management strives to maintain a high level of readiness to respond to natural and man-made disasters.

All departments, agencies, and private organizations work via an integrated emergency management program to plan for the mitigation of hazards, prepare for emergencies, and assist the County in returning to pre-disaster conditions.

Important Notice!

Effective on 7/1/2021, Adams County will replace its current alert system, Alert Iowa, to Rave Alert and Smart 911.

The Smart911 App allows you to receive push notifications across the State, including National Weather Service Warnings, and to set up a user profile for you and your family that includes the option to add multiple addresses and numbers.

For those who do not want to use the Smart911App, a County opt-in page will still be available which will allow you to register multiple addresses and numbers and to create a user account.

Users will be able to sign up and receive alerts in languages other than English.

There will be the ability to provide additional information to the registry, which will be used in the event of an emergency for messaging to specific groups.

Instructions on how to register in the new system will be released soon and will be found here on this page.
