In conjunction with Scott County, the City of Walcott is participating in the Alert Iowa system to send alerts to the public. Residents can sign up for alerts which can include weather-related information, urgent messaging groups, and city options including urgent (snow emergency, water main breaks, street closures, etc.) or non-urgent (trash collection, hydrant flushing, misc., etc.).
You can sign up online through a web opt-in page for Scott County, https://www.scottcountyiowa.gov/ema/alert-iowa or download the Smart911 App.
