  Dare County's Beach Alert System

On July 3, Dare County Emergency Management established a text to join group allowing anyone to subscribe by simply texting “Join OBXBeachConditions to 30890.  Subscribers will receive beach related NWS Alerts issued 24 hours a day for the Outer Banks.  Users will also receive condition reports posted by ocean rescue personnel. In addition to text to join, anyone can sign up for Dare County Alerts and Notifications at

Drew Pearson, Dare County’s Emergency Management Director said, “The safety of our residents and visitors is priority number one. Using our County’s alerting system to get people the information they need to make informed decisions on beach hazards just made sense. We want everyone to enjoy our beautiful beaches without being overtaken by the ocean’s unforgiving power. I encourage everyone to respect that power by checking conditions before heading out - always swim near a lifeguard and never enter the ocean when red flags are flying.”
