Effective July 1, 2021, Cedar County Emergency Management has a new notification system that will also affect the City of Durant. We now use Alert Iowa. If you were signed up prior to July 1, 2021 with WENS-Wireless Emergency Notification System - you will need to sign up under Alert Iowa. It does not matter what county you live in, if you sign up you will receive local alerts and notification. In order for anyone to receive local notifications such as boil orders or snow emergencies, please go to https://ema.cedar-county.org/.  Under “Sign Up Now” an account can be created so you can receive the county and local city alerts.  You can also text CedarIA to 672-83 to create an account.

If you do not sign up there will be no notifications from the City of Durant. Unfortunately that is how this system is designed under Iowa Homeland Security.

If you have general questions, please call City Hall at 563-785-4451. If you need help creating an account please call Cedar County Emergency Management and Jodi or Kate can assist with helping you create an account: 563-886-3355. We are hoping in the future to have a direct link from our website to Cedar County EMA to make it easier to sign up. If you do not have a computer or smart phone and would like to sign up, you may call Cedar County EMA, or you may use the computers at the Durant Branch, Scott County Library to set up an account.
