Prevent. Protect. Respond. Recover.

Warning Systems

The State of Idaho and the federal government provide several methods of emergency notification for the citizens of our state. Messages that affect the entire nation are delivered via the NAWAS and EAS systems. State, county, and local government information is provided by the EAS system in cooperation with broadcasters located across the state. Important weather information is provided by the National Weather Service through their weather warning radio network. The State Automated Warning System notifies key personnel of events that require their attention and provides instructions on what actions they should take.

Technology is always evolving, and new and better ways of communicating with the citizens of Idaho are being evaluated. The Idaho Office of Emergency Management will always strive to provide Idaho with accurate and timely information in an efficient manner.
