Nixle was convenient and the system allowed more than 19K citizens within the 97520 zip code to sign up for emergency alerts! The new Citizen Alert system will allow you to enter your specific address information. What does this mean for you? It means that you will receive targeted messages for your area. Messages like power outages, or police actions that only affect a certain area, or a target area for evacuation--- Know your evacuation zone!

Being Better Prepared means everyone should sign up for a personal Citizen Alert account. It is important to remember that all members of your household should register for alerts, so everyone is receiving the same alert to know what is happening.

Sign up today by visiting ashland.or.us/Alerts. Youíll be glad you did.

 A study with KLD Engineering, P.C., was underway well before the 2020 Almeda Fire to analyze estimated evacuation times. The study results were used to update the Cityís evacuation map using a zone-based approach and to educate the public.
