Cleveland Dam SMS Notification System Sign Up

The SMS text message notification system is part of a suite of tools to support public communication about the Cleveland Dam enhanced public warning system. SMS notifications will help subscribers know if the lights and sirens indicate an alarm testing situation or an actual dam-related emergency.

To sign up to receive SMS text message or email notifications about audible and visible alarm system testing or use, please read the following information and complete the online form.

Messages contain information to confirm why the audible and visible alarm system has been activated.

This system will be used to send messages related to the following two situations:

System Alarm Testing Alert:

  • In the event of a system alarm test, sirens and lights will activate, followed by a verbal warning indicating a test is underway.
  • Individuals who subscribe to the Cleveland Dam SMS Notification System will receive a message indicating that a test is underway and no action is required.

Emergency Alert:

  • In the event of an emergency alert, sirens and lights will activate.
  • Individuals who subscribe to the Cleveland Dam SMS Notification System will receive an emergency alert message indicating that anyone in the area or downstream of the Cleveland Dam should evacuate the river area immediately. An alert will also be sent when the event has ended.
