About the Johnson County Emergency Notification System
The Johnson County Emergency Notification System (JCENS) is a high-speed telephone emergency notification service. This notification system for mass public safety alerts is a free opt-in service for Johnson County residents.
During an emergency, the system delivers mass voice, text, and email messages to registered phones and email addresses. The system allows dispatchers and emergency managers to notify the entire county or specific areas of an evacuation, lost or missing person, or other type of public safety threat.
The system also sends alerts to email and text-capable cell subscribers for specific hazardous weather threats issued by the National Weather Service: Severe Thunderstorm Warnings, Tornado Warnings, Flash Flood Warnings, Ice Storm Warnings, and Blizzard Warnings. The system can provide desktop popup alerting for government buildings within Johnson County.
