TEST of Mariposa County Emergecny Notification System

This is a county wide test of the Emergency Notification System for Mariposa County. No action is required

 

The series of tests will allow residents to verify they are signed up properly and what methods of delivery residents have requested. Please encourage your family, friends and neighbors to sign up for Nixle Emergency Notifications.

The emergency notification system has multiple notification abilities.

            1. Landline Phones- This method, previously known as “reverse 911” allows us to make landline calls based on a single address assigned to a single landline phone number. This method does NOT require residents to sign up. This information comes directly from the phone company providers. Using this notification method would require the resident to be home in order to receive the emergency notification.

 

            2. Cell Phone Voice, Cell Phone Text & Email Address- This method allows residents to be notified of emergencies no matter where they are. The resident is given the opportunity to register for any or all of the following:

                        Cell Phone Voice- A voice call to a cell phone, residents can register for multiple address locations, i.e. home, work, school, vacation home, rental property, etc. There is no limit to the amount of addresses you can register.

                        Cell Phone Text- A brief text to a cell phone typically containing a hyperlink residents can click on for more information, directions or photos. Residents can register for multiple address locations, i.e. home, work, school, vacation home, rental property, etc. There is no limit to the amount of addresses you can register.

 

                        Email – An email message that can be retrieved from both, home computers and mobile devices. Emails can be brief or contain detailed information, directions or photos. Residents can register for multiple address locations, i.e. home, work, school, vacation home, rental property, etc. There is no limit to the amount of addresses you can register.

 

This test of our emergency notification system is also an attempt to encourage residents to prepare for real life emergencies by registering their cell phone numbers and e-mail address at www.nixle.com. By signing up for this system, residents will receive important information in the case of an emergency.
