Changes to our Park Text and Email Alert System

Most of our Park Members are familiar with the Alert System we’ve been using for the past few years. Primarily intended to alert our members of emergencies and other urgent information, these alerts are sent as text messages to your phone or email address. It’s a system that has been well received by members and has worked well.

The system we’ve been using was called Alert-Sense, a service utilized by the City of Sutherlin as well as other governmental bodies in Douglas County. Fortunately, the City allowed us to utilize the same system for our needs.

However, there are changes being made. The City, along with Douglas County, has moved to a different Alert system. We’ve determined that the new system will not work for our needs. As a result, we are now looking for a stand-alone system that will work for Timber Valley.

Until we can get a replacement system functioning, we will utilize the Parks radio-net and block captain system to inform members of urgent and emergency information.

As soon as a new system is fully operational we will inform members and provide information on how to sign up for it.
