About the Citizen alert system

Alert Iowa is a statewide emergency notification system the county uses to send alerts to residents.

Improvements to the system will enable Harrison County officials to better communicate emergency

information directly to citizens via voice call, text message, email, and social media. The system also

now has the capability to translate messages into multiple languages.


“Alert Iowa is a great tool that allows us to push official, real-time alerts to our residents,” said Philip Davis, Harrison County emergency manager. “These upgrades will not only make it easier for us to

notify our residents when emergencies happen or we need to share important safety information,

but will let residents choose the best way for them to receive alerts.”


Signing up for Alert Iowa is easy and can be done through the county’s web portal, by sending a text, or by downloading the Smart911 app. Residents who are currently signed up to receive alerts through Everbridge will need to sign up again.


To sign up:

● Create an account on the Harrison County web portal at

● Text HARRISONIA to 672-83.

● Download the Smart911 app from the Apple or Google Play stores
