The City of Roeland Park and Johnson County launched a new mass communication system that sends alerts about impending emergencies and severe weather. This service is free and you can sign up to receive your alerts via phone, text, or e-mail. Anyone who lives, works, or plays in Johnson County is encouraged to go to www.NotifyJoCo.org to set up their free NotifyJoCo account and personalize their contact preferences. You will be able to identify multiple locations that you want to receive emergency messages about, and can receive these notifications on multiple devices (for example, receive both a text message and an e-mail). This system is especially important now during our severe weather season.
If you do not have Internet access, please call 913-826-5555 to register your information. All information provided will be kept confidential and only used to contact citizens about emergencies and topics in which they have expressed interest. Additionally, only authorized county and city officials will send messages.
