The Monroe County emergency alert system can alert users about dangerous road conditions.

Monroe County is launching an emergency notification system, allowing residents to receive information about dangerous situations through text messages, email and voicemails.

Those wishing to receive the notifications must sign up for the service. During that process, residents can also select whether they want updates on county road conditions during severe weather.

The Monroe County Health Department received a grant to create the system. The Monroe County Commissioners plan to fund it over the next three years.
