Jackson Emergency Notification

System (JENS)

 Jackson County uses an emergency notification system that may alert you by landline phone, cell phone voice or text message and/or as an e-mail to your e-mail address. JENS alerts are messages that may alert you of an emergency situation, may ask you to take appropriate action, or both. The National Weather Service will automatically send severe weather warnings to affected areas of the county and Emergency Services (911) will be able to send other emergency or important messages also. Text messages will be short (only 160 characters long). This is a free notification service but your cell phone service provider will charge you for receiving alerts thru your cell phone. Alerts will only be done in emergency situations. Landline phones will automatically be entered in the system but any cell phones or email addresses must be registered by the citizen who wishes to receive the service due to the possible cost to them.
