Some cellular providers charge for all text messaging. In an effort to keep you prepared but help limit charges, the following is a guide for messages sent via text message.
When the fire may spread quickly endangering structures or cause impact to high volume traveled roads.

When impact is to high volume traveled roads.
Tornado, flash flood, tropical storm, and hurricane warnings will be sent. Extensions to all tornado warnings will be sent via text. Extensions to flood warnings will only be sent if the extension is greater than one hour.
All breaking news messages will be sent to email accounts.
Thank you for allowing us to assist in your preparedness efforts.
Monitor weather sources for additional information or extensions to the watch or warning.
