KSD logo

On November 17, 2018, at approximately 10:45 a.m., the Kenosha Sheriff's Division of Emergency Management will conduct a test of "IPAWS (Integrated Public Alert Wireless System)." An IPAWS mass notification alert is used to warn the public when the following criteria can be applied:

  • Does the hazardous situation require the public to take immediate action?
  • Does the hazardous situation pose a severe threat to life or property?
  • Is there a high degree of probability the hazard situation will occur?

It is essential that individuals answer the wireless/landline call, or open the text message from the Kenosha Sheriff’s Division of Emergency Management; otherwise, the test message will continue to attempt to connect to the provider.


Please sign up for public alerts at the Kenosha Sheriff’s Department website AlertSense can send voice and text messages to alert Kenosha County residents in a wide variety of potential emergencies countywide or a particular geographical area.
