Burton Alert

Burton Village Emergency Notification System (not the same as Geauga Alerts!)

Alert SignBurton Village’s new emergency notification system, Burton Alert, enables you to receive, at no extra charge*, informational messages from the Village in the event of an emergency.  The information sent through Burton Alert is intended to help keep you informed should the Village experience a significant event such as a water main break, boil alert, public health emergency, weather emergency, etc.  Messages may cover such subjects as safety alerts and directions on what to do; the location of a shelter; evacuation orders; debris removal information; and the Village’s response to an emergency.  You can receive either a phone call or text message to a designated number, AND an email.

You can apply on-line by downloading the Burton Alert Sign Up Form, complete it, and press the "Submit" button on the form.

*Individual text charges may apply depending on your mobile carrier.

Geauga Alerts!
