The City of Ashland has partnered with Nixle to implement its Community Notification System to alert residents in real-time for localized emergency situations and relevant community advisories. Residents already “opted-in” to the County Citizen Alert System will still get regional messages but have to sign up with Nixle for City of Ashland specific messaging like street closures, evacuations, or power outages.
“Nixle allows the City to control our local alerts to a greater degree, allowing better communication with our citizens and ease of use for our employees to use the system,” said Fire Chief Mike D’Orazi.
The service is secure, reliable and easy to use.
All Alerts will be targeted geographically, allowing residents to receive localized, relevant alerts from the City. Nixle Alerts can be sent via Text, Email, Voice, Web, Social Media, and the Nixle Mobile App in an instant. Nixle is partnered with NLETS for unmatched data security, as well as the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the National Blue Alert Network, and Google for unmatched reach and two-way information exchange.
Founded in 2009, Nixle provides a mass communications hub built exclusively for government to provide secure, reliable, and relevant information to residents in real-time. Today, over 7,200 Agencies around the United States rely on Nixle for Community Engagement and Emergency Communications. Nixle’s exclusive partnerships with NLETS, Google and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children allows local police departments nationwide to send immediate alerts and advisories.
