Idaho State Alert and Warning System (ISAWS). The Idaho Office of Emergency Management has developed a valuable source for emergency information available to all Idahoans. This system allows the Bureau to use a wide variety of methods to contact Idahoans in case of an emergency. This includes notification of impending severe weather situations, missing children alerts (in most cases), natural and/or manmade disasters, civil emergencies and events of statewide and national significance. Enrollment is simple and Idahoans have their choice of how they would like to receive ISAWS messaging. Enrollment is voluntary and you can chose notification via cell phone, email, home phone, mobile devices such as PDA’s and pagers, or any combination of the preceding. You may also choose between voice and text messaging, or both.
