The Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) allows Delta County to relay life saving information and directions to all Delta County citizens, businesses and entities thru the Emergency Alert System, all radio, TV stations, AM FM radio; Digital, analog, cable and satellite systems; all cell phone systems; NOAA Weather Radios; all web applications, widgets, web sites, and social media; and is designed to utilize future technology as it becomes available.  

This alert and warning notification system was developed at the national level to ensure a capability to reach all citizens regardless of location or digital technology they use.  In Delta County, we have the authority to activate this system, however, we have never used this technology as it is reserved for only situations that would result in immediate or imminent loss of life.
