Emergency Text and Email for Citizens E-mail
Nixle.jpgCity Announces New Emergency Notifiction Program

November 3, 2009

I am pleased to announce that when emergencies occur in Munroe Falls, residents can now receive notification by text message on their cell phone. The City will use Nixle’s Community Information Service to notify the public of safety emergencies such as police or fire emergencies, severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, boil water alerts, or any emergency requiring public notification.

Residents can also receive announcements that are non-emergency, if they choose, such as street repair, leaf pick up routes, etc. After registering at www.nixle.com , residents will choose the service for which they would like to receive notifications: Police, Fire, and or City. They will also choose how they would like to be notified by text message, e-mail or internet applications, such as Facebook or Twitter.

While other cities are paying up to $10,000.00 per year for this type of service, the cost to the City is ZERO, and it is FREE to users.  Standard text message rates may vary, based on your mobile phone plan. This service is not commingled with advertising. Our City joins over 3000 other government agencies using Nixle.

Fire Chief Jim Bowery, Police Chief Scott Bellinger, and I are excited about the opportunity to increase the safety services to the residents of our City. This is a service we hope all residents take advantage of to be immediately informed of emergency situations.
