Public Impact and Disaster Texting

When a public impact situation or disaster affects the community, many people don’t know where to look to find out factual information about the situation. To provide another form of communication with officials and the public, the Helpline Center has partnered with local communities to provide text message alerts to be sent as a situation arises. This program provides the opportunity for individuals to be informed of severe weather, disassters, traffic hazards, or wild fires.

To receive the updates for the following areas: 

  • Brown County:
    • Text “AlertBrown” to 85511
  • Great Plains Fire:
    • Text “GPFire” to 85511
  • Pennington County:
    • Text “ALERTPC” to 85511
  • Rapid City Area:
    • Text “ALERTRC” to 85511
  • Rapid City Downtown Snow Alert:
    • Text “RCSnow” to 85511
  • Yankton County:
