Emergency Warning System

When disaster strikes, you may have only a short time to make what might be a life or death decision. Even though it is rare, catastrophic events such as tornadoes or major chemical releases do occur. We can not predict exactly where or when they will occur, but we can take precautions to minimize the danger.

One of the most important things you can do is to be aware that a danger is present. Most of the injuries and deaths happen to people who are unaware or uninformed. For this reason, it is crucial that you understand the warning system.

Dane County Warning System Choices . . . You Decide

Dane County uses a combination of methods for alerting the public when disaster threatens. We recognize that no one application can provide warning to all citizens. As a result, we take a systematic approach, understanding the advantages and disadvantages of each component. Some of these alerting methods, such as outdoor sirens, are owned and operated by the County. Others, such as NOAA Weather Radio or local broadcast media are not controlled by the County, but cooperate in broadcasting warning information. Only you can decide which of these methods of receiving warning information works best for you and your family.
