News, Notifications & Alerts


--- We are in the process of moving ---

Our Davenport Direct system is going away.  If you previously subscribed to alerts and notifications from Davenport Direct you will need to create an account in our new system | Alert Iowa.  Alert Iowa is a system being used across the state of Iowa, and unlike our last platform, you can sign-up for alerts and notifications with other  agencies, such as the National Weather Service, and communities in Scott County.  One log-in can keep you connected and informed. 

Alert Iowa provides news and notices straight to your device and is one of the most reliable ways to stay informed of the items you are most interested in. Text, e-mail, and phone notifications and alerts include:

  •  Weather Warnings and Advisories
  • Emergencies 
  • Snow Emergencies
  • Street Closures and Lane Reductions
  • Flood Updates
  • Park Programs
  • Ward Meetings
  • And, much more

You decide what is important to you.


In addition, the new system has several unique features that can help first responders help you when disaster strikes. For example, you can receive notifications of emergency incidents that might affect you or your neighborhood by providing your address. Adding an emergency contact to your profile gives police and fire access to this information when it might be needed most.

Have a less tech-savvy parent you would like to sign-up for alerts? No problem. You can do that too and help them manage their account.

---  Davenport Direct will not send alerts and notifications effective 10.01.21 ---
