The Huntington Woods Department of Public Safety has launched a new Community Notification Service called “Nixle” to provide communication with people who live, work, and visit our city. The system provides a quick, efficient, and secure way to get neighborhood-level information out to community members who subscribe to the system. Through www.nixle.com, the public safety department will be able to send text message (SMS) and e-mail alerts to subscribers in a specific area.
Through Nixle, we will deliver messages securely to citizens by e-mail and cell phone, supporting and expanding our community outreach efforts. The system will be most effective when we have large numbers of subscribers. Nixle informational updates will be disseminated from the Huntington Woods Department of Public Safety by e-mail and cell phone text message.
Examples of notifications that will be available are:
- A young child or adult with Alzheimer’s disease walks away from their home. The alert can include a picture of the child or vulnerable adult with a map identifying the area at which they were last seen.
- A public safety emergency that requires people to stay in or remain away from their homes. A Nixle alert can let residents with a registered address in the affected neighborhood know what’s happening, allowing residents to take a proactive role in their own safety.
- Neighborhood Watch information and crime trends that the residents should be aware of in the area
- Snow Emergencies
- Traffic and Weather Alerts and Updates that pertain to Oakland County
Nixle is a secure communications service and there is no spam or advertising associated with Nixle messages. The system is available at absolutely no cost to subscribers*
If you have any questions please contact The Huntington Woods Public Safety Department at 541-1180
*Standard text message rates apply for subscribers who do not have text plans with their cell phone providers
