WENS, provides emergency alerts to residents all across Seneca County. The alerts could include information about severe weather, snow level emergencies and road closings or detours. It takes just a few minutes to register. Alerts can be sent via text, e-mail or voice message. We urge people to sign up their elderly family members or friends without internet. These people could still receive phone calls to landlines and it could help them during an emergency. National Weather Service emergency alerts will be sent to those who join the program, but other optional alerts also can be received including messages about community events and information regarding the county fairgrounds. To sign up for the program, residents can text SenecaAlerts! to 69310 or can visit this page. Those who register via text will receive emergency information only, while residents can choose which alerts they would like to receive through the online link. The sign up form also allows users to give information about disabilities or special needs they have that could be utilized by emergency services personnel during a disaster. If you have questions about the system or want to change which alerts you receive, you can call Seneca County Emergency Services at (419) 447-0266.
