Alert Iowa Emergency Notification System

   Alert Iowa

The City of Bettendorf is no longer using Code Red as their emergency notification system and will be using a new emergency notification system called Alert Iowa, which is through the Scott County Emergency Management Agency and the State of Iowa.

Alert Iowa is a statewide mass notification and emergency messaging system that can be used by state and local authorities as well as the National Weather Service (NWS) to quickly disseminate emergency information to residents in counties that utilize the system. In the event of an emergency, an alert will be sent to the phone number and/or email address provided by voice, text, and/or email. Alert Iowa will allow citizens to sign up for the types of alerts they would like to receive. Once you sign up, you will automatically get some weather notifications – warnings of flash floods, tornados and floods. If you would like to receive alerts for additional weather events or any other types of alerts from Scott County or National Weather Service, you will have to sign up through the link below. If you would like to receive specific alerts issued from the City of Bettendorf (similar to past alerts you may have received from Code Red), you will have to select “Bettendorf” in the community section when you are signing up.

This new Alert Iowa emergency reporting system is operated by the State of Iowa and Scott County Emergency Management Agency, not the City of Bettendorf. The City of Bettendorf is an authorized user of the system and has the ability to send out alerts when it affects Bettendorf residents only. Please note, if you select weather warnings/watches or select any other community to receive alerts from, these notifications do not come from the City of Bettendorf.

You may register multiple phone numbers or e-mail addresses by clicking “add” below the first number or address you enter. You may also register for multiple addresses for alerts by simply submitting and then starting over again at the Bettendorf website. Example: you can register to receive alerts for your home and your place of work (even if in another town in Scott County) or you could register to get alerts for the address of a family member or your children’s school.

To learn more about Alert Iowa or to sign up for this service, please click on the link below, this will take you to the Scott County Emergency Management Agency website. 

You still need to sign up to receive Alert Iowa notifications because your previously registered information from Code Red is not transferrable.
