Emergency IconEmergency Notifications

The Dakota Communications Center (DCC) manages a high speed notification system designed to quickly notify the public of emergencies that may affect their health, safety, or welfare. Examples of notification events are hazardous material spills, pandemic outbreaks, or missing persons. All areas of Dakota County are covered by the system.

The system uses the 911 database and other sources for its notification lists, but no one should assume that their information is included. 

You can also sign up to receive emergency text and email notifications from the DCC.
