After years of rarely using Code Red, a basically defunct emergency notification system, Hardin County has adopted the State's newest system - Alert Iowa.

Alert Iowa was developed by the Iowa Homeland Security and Emergency Management Department in 2013 and adopted by Gov. Terry Branstad in 2014. The system allows Hardin County law enforcement and emergency management to notify subscribers of weather, imminent emergency and public safety warnings through either email, text message or voice call. The system went live in Hardin County Nov. 27.
