Alerts

McDonald County 911 is proud to introduce our new Emergency Notification System. This system will allow warnings to be provided to the residents of the county for possible impending dangers of storms, man-made events or any incident that would endanger the Public’s life or property.

The new system will contact residents through email, land line telephone and cell phones, including the use of text messages, which is customisable to the user. This is a free service to all residents of McDonald County.

The ALERT system will send automatic warnings regarding severe weather such as tornado warnings, flooding, fire dangers and winter weather. Information about missing children or warnings about criminal activity, or hazardous conditions that could affect the public safety will be sent out directly from the 911 Dispatchers on duty to the residents so that no miscommunication or duplication of messages may occur. We are attempting to bring optional messages such as highway closures, school dismissals, and other closure information, boil order or messages pertaining to residents of a particular city, or business to the residents of McDonald County by offering the use of the system to other Agencies and groups at no additional charge. This cooperation will also allow sign up locations throughout the County. We would like to thank the below listed businesses and groups for their cooperation and assistance in spreading the news and helping the residents in signing up for the service:
