The City of Ridgecrest is now on
The Ridgecrest Police Department has begun utilizing a new service to distribute important, valuable community information when you need it, using the latest technology.
Our agency will create and publish messages through Nixle. Nixle will then deliver this information to you instantly through text, email and web message. Notifications can also be accessed online at Nixle’s website at www.nixle.com
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.
All Alerts will be targeted geographically, allowing residents to receive localized, relevant alerts from the Ridgecrest Police Department. Nixle Alerts can be received via Text, Email, and the Web. The Ridgecrest Police Department will also rebroadcast (forward) alerts from the National Weather Service. Users will receive alerts and advisories of weather and other geographic related issues.
In the next few months, the City of Ridgecrest will be expanding the use of the Nixle platform to include Parks & Recreation alerts, Family Movie Night alerts. Etc… These
additional categories can be “opted in” at a later time and instruction will be provide to Nixle users.
The service is secure, reliable and easy for our group to use. You decide what information you want and whether you want it sent to your cell phone, email or simply over the web.
