Wireless Emergency Notification System (WENS)

wens_logoLorain County will be launching the WENS program in the near future. You can follow the link below to set up your account.  The system allows officials to send out mass notifications to those affected by possible hazards in their area. The system allows each person to personalize what they receive. Only individuals who have signed up will be alerted. There is no charge for the service. Once the system is complete you may receive a few test notifications during activation.
