HELP PROTECT YOUR FAMILY
Outagamie County is excited to announce that we’ve partnered with AtHoc, to implement a new mass notification system that allows citizens to self register for emergency alerts. When an emergency happens in your neighborhood and the 911 center needs to get urgent information to you, AtHoc will ensure you get critical alerts and actionable information. You may also register to receive weather information. You want to be selective on the weather alerts so you are not getting overwhelmed with general weather statements. Some priority selections to consider should be severe thunderstorm warning and tornado warning.
