SWCAA Burn Ban Alerts Subscription Details

What is it?

The SWCAA Burn Ban Alerts Subscription provides you with timely notices when Burn Bans are called. An E-mail or SMS Text (cell) message is sent to all subscribers when a Burn Ban is in effect:

  • Air Pollution Advisories
  • Air Quality Burn Bans
  • Fire Safety Burn Bans

Why did we create this Service?

SWCAA had a limited notice service provided by a 3rd party service that only included burn ban and air quality notices. The service company was sold and the new company's service did not meet our communications needs therefore we created our own service. An E-mail or SMS Text (Cell phone) message is sent to our subscribers whenever SWCAA invokes a Burn Ban action of interest to you. The Notice message contains details of the action or provides a reference to a SWCAA web page where additional information may be obtained.


Who can benefit from this Service?

The Alert Service is available to all citizens and business concerns in Clark, Cowlitz, Lewis, Skamania, and Wahkiakum counties in southwest Washington State. People outside of these areas may subscribe if they have an interest in SWCAA Burn Ban Alerts. Feel free to let your friends, relatives, and neighbors know of this service.
