CITY OF BANNING ASKS RESIDENTS TO SIGN-UP TO RECEIVE LOCAL ALERTS
Banning Residents Can Now Receive Real Time Public Safety Messages Through Nixle
(Banning, CA)- The City of Banning has partnered with Nixle to implement its Community Notification System to alert residents in real-time for localized emergency situations and relevant community advisories.
As a resident, there are several simple ways to register:
- Text your ZIPCODE to 888777 from your mobile phone
- Go to http://www.ci.banning.ca.us and sign up via the Nixle Widget
Once registered, residents will receive a confirmation text to their mobile device. Residents may also customize their alert settings by going to www.nixle.com and creating a User Profile.
“Communication is critical in the event of an emergency or natural disaster and text messaging is considered to be one of the most likely tools that will be available to get important information to the public following a major incident. The beauty of Nixle is that it is a robust system that can be used to communicate day-to-day issues as well as the major incidents that occur infrequently,” according to Banning City Manager Doug Schulze.
The service is secure, reliable and easy to use for our organization.
All Alerts will be targeted geographically, allowing residents to receive localized, relevant alerts from the City of Banning. Nixle Alerts can be sent via Text, Email, Web, Social Media, and the Nixle Mobile App in an instant. Nixle is partnered with NLETS for unmatched data security, as well as the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the National Blue Alert Network, and Google for unmatched reach and two-way information exchange.
We are very excited to have you experience it for yourself.
