Text system alerts public to swimming hazards

Currituck County has established a new opt-in text messaging alert system for swimming conditions in Corolla and Carova.  Citizens may join this free service to receive a text message if a hazardous condition is present that affects swimming.  Examples include red flags, rip currents, or bacterial contamination.  Alerts will only be sent out when there is a hazardous condition.

To opt into the system, citizens should text SAFECOROLLA to 888777.
