WINS

(Warning Information Notification System)

WINS (Warning Information Notification System) is a public service alert system that includes over 150 categories of weather, emergency and non-emergency alerts. WINS notifications are sent to your home phone, smartphone, TTY, email or text messages by county departments, townships, villages and cities within St. Clair County. YOU choose the alert types and delivery methods that are important to you and your family. A couple of helpful tips when signing up:

  1. Please ensure that you open each category using the “+” symbol to see each alert type within the category. The weather category alone includes 32 types of alerts and you can select which are important to you.

  2. When in the weather category, please ensure that you set your “do not disturb between” hours for non-emergency weather alerts. You will receive emergency weather alerts such as Tornado warnings regardless of your “do not disturb between” hours.

  3. Put in the addresses that are important to you. Because this system allows agencies to target their information in emergency situations, only people who have an address listed in the immediate area will receive emergency alerts. Please ensure you input the addresses that are important to you. You can have up to five addresses including home, work, school or other.

If you have any questions about the Warning Information Notification System, please contact the Office of St. Clair County Homeland Security and Emergency Management at (810) 989-6965.
