“TextMyGov has been a wonderful asset to our city. It serves as another pipeline to communicate with our residents and easily keep them informed.
The TextMyGov staff is incredibly helpful and willing to step in and help at a moment’s notice.
We look forward to continuing our relationship with TextMyGov and using their services.”
Marie from Utah
“ TextMyGov has been a game changer for the City as far as getting the word out to citizens in a timely manner.
As an example, Saturday morning around 7 am a tornado struck our town. Shortly thereafter, I got a phone call from the Mayor to get the word out that until damages could be assessed, they wanted to restrict people on the streets. I was able to access TMG from my cell phone at home and within a few minutes had the first alert out. Over the course of the morning while assessments were made, and even the next day as repairs continued, I was able to send out multiple alerts to residents and keep them aware of what was going on.
We have received feedback from multiple residents that they loved knowing what was happening and that the City was on top of things.”
Marla from Nebraska
“We have been using TextMyGov for a few years now and have found it to be a great tool to help us connect people with the information and services they need. It has cut down on the number of calls that come in because the texts direct the person to the information on the county website.
We hope to expand our use of TextMyGov to include opt-in text groups that inform the public during emergency situations and for special events. We love TextMyGov!”
