New Countywide System Sends Emergency Alerts to Your Cell Phone

The Mahoning County Emergency Management Agency is making a new Emergency Alert System available to all county residents that is designed to keep you informed in the event of an emergency or severe or non-severe weather event.

Through the Smart911 Ready Mahoning service, you can choose to receive text, email, voice message and/or social media alerts, and can customize the type of alerts you want to receive. Emergency alerts are sent 24/7 when there is an immediate threat to life and/or property.

This service is provided at no cost to the public; however, message and data rates may apply depending on your provider and phone services.
