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.

Sign up forms will be included in the August/September newsletter as well as in the August water bills. Forms will also be available in the Village Office soon. Plans are for the new system to be live on October 2, 2017.

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!

In the event of an emergency or severe weather condition, a text message alert will be sent to the phone number provided. **PLEASE N0TE: Geauga Alerts! and Burton Alert are not the same thing.  Signing up for Geauga Alerts! does not mean you are automatically signed up for Burton Alert.  Geauga Alerts! is for Geauga County, and Burton Alert is for Burton Village, only.
