Sendmode Community Text Alert

Community Text Alert systems are becoming increasingly popular across Ireland as a way for people, particularly in rural areas to broadcast community alerts to the community. Community Text Alert systems are being used for everything, from general announcements, to Garda vetted announcements of a more serious nature.

Example of General Announcements

  • Community Fundraisers
  • Community Meetings
  • Weather Alerts

Garda Vetted announcements go through the local Garda station and are of a more serious nature as the Gardaí need to vet the validity of the alert.

Examples of Garda Vetted Announcements

  • Suspicious Activity
  • Keep a look out for…
  • Crime Prevention Advice
