Emergency Notification System, Nixle
by text message, email, and web.
Nixle Community Notification System for alerting residents and businesses in real-time for localized emergency situations and relevant community advisories. This system will improve the safety of all our residents by giving us the ability to deliver not only telephone notifications but be able to provide these notifications by text and through social media outlets. Westport has instituted the Nixle Community Notification System so that we can notify areas of the town, or the entire town when there is an emergency situation that requires immediate action.
And let other Westporters know they can register at www.nixle.com, or by simply texting 06880 to 888777 from their mobile phone. Once registered, residents will receive a confirmation text to their mobile device.
Residents and businesses may also customize their alert settings by going to www.nixle.com and creating a User Profile. Nixle will be replacing the CodeRED emergency notification system Westport has used since 2009; residents and business owners should not assume their number is registered and should take the time to register.
Examples of when Westport might use Nixle to notify residents and businesses
- Drinking water contamination
- Utility and 911outages
