The Ashtabula County Emergency Management Agency has implemented SwiftReach’s Swift911™ alerting solution. This will allow us to alert our community with emergency messages; VIA telephone, text or email, and provide important information on how to take action.
Some contact information, either provided by SwiftReach or from the county’s internal collections, has already been uploaded in the system. However, a majority of our community members are not in the system.
On 03-04-2019 a power outage message was sent out which only reached 160 of the 588 telephone numbers that were on file for the village. There are approximately 925 residential homes in the Village of Roaming Shores. The low number of contacts was due to 72% of the on file numbers being outdated, obsolete or incorrect. The additional 337 uncontacted residences were simply not registered.
There are two (2) simple options to opt-in and provide contact information, or change the current/possibly outdated information we have for you.
# 1 Swift911™ WEB PORTAL
Go to The Ashtabula County website which can be found at www.ashtabulacounty.us.
Within the Ashtabula County website, there is a Swift911™ link with logo located at the bottom right of the page.
Simply click on Swift911 image and follow instructions to provide your information.
#2 Swift911™ MOBILE APP
To get the Swift911™ Mobile App, simply text the word “Swift911” to “99538”. You will receive a response with a link for the Swift911™ Public App within your app store. This app is free and available on most Apple, Android and Windows smartphones.
We can only alert you of an emergency if we have your correct contact information.
If you do not have access to a computer or smart phone or if you are unable to register with the above two options, please contact the police department and we will forward your information along to the EMA so that they can manually input your information into the system.
