Wireless Emergency Notification System (WENS)
Severe weather can occur at any time. The City of Euless created the Wireless Emergency Network Service when it was discovered that text messages will transmit when voice messages would not. In the event of an emergency, a text message will be sent to the mobile number and/or email outlining the nature of the emergency. With the ability to send out 25,000 text messages per minute, this became a valuable communication tool.
The system will be used for emergencies such as weather, chemical spills or lost children. There is no cost to the subscriber other than fees that cell phone providers may charge to receive text messages. To sign up, use the online form at www.euless.org/wens or contact the police department at 817-685-1500.
