Delaware Emergency Notification System

The Delaware Emergency Notification System (DENS) is the primary system for public warning and emergency protective action information in Delaware. The system allows local 911 centers or emergency managers to send messages to the specific street, neighborhood, or larger areas affected by the event.

Register today by clicking the DENS link below. You will be taken to the registration page, managed by Code Red. The web page has simple step-by-step instructions on the information it needs to geocode your phone number to your home or work at this link.

NOAA All-Hazards Radio

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio (NWR) provides an excellent source of up-to-date, real time emergency information. NWR requires a special radio receiver or scanner capable of picking up the signal. Additional information is available at this link.
