Getting correct information during an emergency is the key to taking safe action. Area residents now have the ability to stay instantly informed of trusted, neighborhood-level, public safety and community information by subscribing to the free service, “Nixle.”
Using Nixle, the Nemaha and Brown County Sheriff’s Offices and other public safety agencies can send messages which will be delivered at no cost to registered residents via text message, email, and/or web. Messages may include important advisories, missing person alerts, real time emergency information and weather alerts, as well as other relevant safety and community event information.
Depending on the alert, notifications can be sent to all registered users or they may be limited to specific geographic areas where the incident is occurring.
More information and registration are available at www.nixle.com or by going to the Nemaha County Sheriff’s website at www.nemahaso.org.
