Help Protect Your Family

Outagamie County is excited to announce that we’ve partnered with AtHoc, to implement a new mass notification system that allows citizens to self register for emergency alerts.  When an emergency happens in your neighborhood and the 911 center needs to get urgent information to you, AtHoc will ensure you get critical alerts and actionable information.  You may also register to receive weather information.  You want to be selective on the weather alerts so you are not getting overwhelmed with general weather statements.  Some priority selections to consider should be severe thunderstorm warning and tornado warning.

Sign Up Instructions for Emergency Alerts:
1.     Visit and click on the AtHoc icon in the lower left hand corner
2.     On the next page click on the registration link:
3.     On the registration page, enter the requested information, e.g. first name, last name, username, password
4.     Once you click on register you will be brought to another page which requires more detail in regards to your location and contact information
5.     Once your name, address and phone number is completed, you may also choose to select any weather alerts you wish to receive
6.     When you are finished, press “Save”
7.     Review your profile and make any needed changes
8.     When alerts are issued you will receive them

9.     Remember your user name and password as you may wish to edit/update your profile in the future
