Emergency Alert Program
Get alerted about emergencies and other important community news by signing up for the Hood County Emergency Alert Program. This program enables local emergency response teams to provide the community with critical information quickly in a variety of situations, such as severe weather, unexpected road closures, boil water notices, missing persons, and more.
The Emergency Alert Program allows local officials to communicate with the community by sending time-sensitive messages to specified locations, such as your home, mobile or business phones, email address, text messages and more. You pick where, you pick how.
