What type of alerts and notifications are there?

There are three types of notifications:

  • Alerts - Emergency-type alerts, usually life-threatening
  • Advisories - Time-sensitive and non-time-sensitive important neighborhood to community-level information
  • Community information - Day-to-day, neighborhood to community-level information, usually non-time-sensitive

Alerts and advisories are sent via text and email. Community information is sent by email only. You can further customize how alerts are delivered by logging into your Nixle account.
