Lucas Co. Alerts now available

There is a new way for Lucas County residents and others to get potentially life saving information sent to their phones or email accounts.

Lucas County Commissioners have partnered with the City of Toledo and other communities to offer Lucas County Alerts.

It's a free notification system that provides emergency alerts to public via text and email.

You will receive up to the minute information on anything from snow emergencies to tornado warnings to amber alerts.

Anyone can choose to opt in, you don't have to live within the county limits.

Just log onto to sign up.
