The City of Oneonta has partnered with Nixle to implement its Community Notification System to alert residents in real-time for localized emergency situations and relevant community advisories. The Nixle system will become active on Monday, October 3, 2016 and will, for a short time, run concurrently with the City’s current provider, Code Red.

As a resident, there are several simple ways to register:

1. Text your ZIPCODE to 888777 from your mobile phone
2. Go to oneonta.ny.us/city and sign up via the Nixle Widget
3. Download and install the Nixle app to your smartphone 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.

The service is secure, reliable and easy to use for our organization, our residents, community members and business owners. All alerts will be targeted geographically, allowing residents to receive localized, relevant alerts from the City of Oneonta. Nixle Alerts can be sent via Text, Email, Voice, 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.

Founded in 2009, Nixle provides a mass communications hub built exclusively for government to provide secure, reliable, and relevant information to residents in real-time. Today, over 7,200 Agencies around the United States rely on Nixle for Community Engagement and Emergency Communications.
