In the wake of Hurricane Irma, the Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce realized the great need to communicate with not only local businesses but area residents as well. Without electricity and internet service, news updates were difficult to receive. However, many were able to still access text messages. The Chamber has recently implemented a community text messaging service to help spread information to the masses in a timely fashion. The service is free to join and open to everyone. Standard messaging rates may apply.
To receive all messages from the Chamber text “TBBCoC” to 72727. To receive targeted information only, please text the following keyword to 72727.
“TBBeaches” – Local Community News
“TBNetwork” – Networking Opportunities
“TBGovernment” – Government Affairs Information
The next time the Tampa Bay beaches face an emergency, the community will now receive information as soon as it is available, so residents and businesses are able to form a plan to act safely and immediately.
