-ISAWS- Idaho State Alert and Warning System

Idaho State Alert and Warning System (ISAWS)

Enroll and receive real-time safety and security alerts electronically….virtually any time or anyplace.

What is ISAWS?

ISAWS provides for any Idahoan, including those with special needs and/or with English as a second language, to enroll for notification of emergencies and significant events which might affect them via cell phone, page, PDA’s, e-mail, home phone, or other specialty communication device (in most cases).

Why enroll in ISAWS?

The Idaho Office of Emergency Management has developed a valuable source for emergency information available to all Idahoans. This system allows the Bureau to use a wide variety of methods to contact Idahoans in case of an emergency. This includes notification of impending severe weather situations, missing children alerts (in most cases), natural and/or manmade disasters, civil emergencies and events of statewide and national significance. Enrollment is simple and Idahoans have their choice of how they would like to receive ISAWS messaging. Enrollment is voluntary and you can chose notification via cell phone, email, home phone, mobile devices such as PDA’s and pagers, or any combination of the preceding. You may also choose between voice and text messaging, or both.

What if I have special needs?

The system has been developed to alert Idahoans with special needs and/or with English as a second language. Simply make note of your situation when you enroll. If you wish to provide contact information for a caregiver, space has been provided for you to do so. Enrollment in this valuable system is easy. Simply follow the sign-up link below to enter your preferences and begin receiving emergency notifications. Your information is secure and not shared with any other organization or group (with the exception of emergency preparedness and response service providers for emergency planning purposes). Be sure to include the address of your primary residence. This “geocodes” your entry and enables the system to use zip codes or highlight an area on a map to quickly alert all registered ISAWS users who reside in that zip code or highlighted area.
