Medina County Mass Notification System

Residents of Medina County can now be notified of emergency situations by a new mass notification system (Wireless Emergency Notification System – WENS). WENS allows safety officials to send messages to the entire community, or a specific area within moments. These messages will inform residents of the situation and give instructions for action.
WENS delivers messages via phone call, text message, & email based on the contact information you provide. The service will be used only for emergency notification, when rapid and accurate information is essential for your immediate safety.
