This paper presents some aspects concerning early wireless flood alarm systems for small rural communities. Due to recent heavy rain period and great amount of water per square meter over a short period of time, one must pay attention to several devices able to prevent the loss of life's and material damages produced by local rapid and intense floods. One solution of a flood alarm system can be a device containing a flow rate transducer, power source and wireless module including directional antenna. The proposed alarm device can be placed on the rivers at considerable distance from the populated area; the flood alarm signal is transmitted in real time by the directional antenna to the intervention center so they can assure the adequate protection for the peoples and major objectives.
