Macon County Emergency Telephone System

The Macon County Emergency Telephone System Board is used in the event of an emergency within Macon County. Alerts are sent out with potentially lifesaving messages regarding critical events such as chemical leaks, active shooter situations, etc.

This information will be sent to residents who have signed up online and to any resident who uses a land line telephone. If you only use a cell phone, you will not receive these critical notifications unless you sign up on line.

Alerts for significaht weather events such as the near miss we had recently are also among the notifications residents may sign up for. The Alert System is able to send Village Alerts to anyone who signs up for alerts such as, but not limited to, boil orders, road closures or construction, and winter weather closures. There are several ways to receive an alert: Text, phone call, email, TTY /TTD, or using the ContactBridge app found in the App Store.

If you are already signed up for the Macon County Emergency Alert & Notification System, please log in to verify your contact information is up to date.

If you have signed up and are not receiving the alerts, please correct your contact information online at    www.co.macon.il.us  .
