Keep your community aware of snow removal, road construction updates, and emergencies in an instant with your MyTownText program.

Community Updates

Connect your community to local events, town celebrations, pool closings, county fair happenings, and more! The MyTownText program allows you to add as many alert groups as you want. Create one for all local updates or make separate groups for special events.

Community Buy-In

A tool is only as useful as you make it! You will have to let your community know about MyTownText so they can sign up. Be sure to let them know that anyone with a cell phone can opt-in to a group in a matter of seconds. You can tell them by: 

  • Placing notices or ads in your local newspaper
  • Give local business and churches posters to display
  • Print cards (business card size) to hand out around town
  • Give restaurants or businesses with counters a table tent to display
  • Print information on Frisbees or bouncy balls and hand them out at a parade or town event
  • Insert a bill flyer in gas or water invoices
  • Have a booth at a fair or town celebration - you could even give away a prize to those who sign up
  • Add them to town T-shirts 
  • Bumper stickers or magnets on city vehicles
  • Door hangers
