Sign Up for Nixle: Ashland’s New Community Alert System
New this summer, the City of Ashland is now using Nixle, an easy and direct way for citizens to get timely information about ongoing issues, major events, air quality advisories, evacuations, and all emergencies affecting town. People already registered in the Jackson County Citizen Alert program will still get regional alerts and messages, but EVERYONE IN ASHLAND NEEDS TO SIGN UP for Nixle if you want messages via anything other than a land line phone (email, text, an app, social media, etc..) even if you are in Citizen Alert already.
There are simple ways to register for Nixle alerts and manage your settings:
Text 97520 as the message and 888777 as the recipient of a text and hit send
You can control your notifications by creating a private, secure account at nixle.com, or just do the text option (#1 above) and only get alerts via text. It’s up to you what level of engagement you want. There’s more to come as we roll out this new program.
We’re working together for the health and safety of our community, please join us.
