This study contributes to the design of the dissemination techniques for SMS as an early warning messages. The metrics used in this study are using user perceptions of tasks, which include the ease of use (EOU) perception for using SMS and confidence with SMS skills perception, as well as, the users' positive perceptions, which include users' perception of usefulness and satisfaction perception towards using SMS as an early warning messages for floods. Experiments and surveys were conducted in flood-prone areas in Semarang, Indonesia. The results showed that the correlation is in users' perceptions of tasks for the confidence with skill.
