Mecosta County Nixle System Monthly Test.

This is the monthly test of the Mecosta County Nixle notification system.

Mecosta County Emergency Management will be performing a monthly test of the Nixle emergency notification system on the second Wednesday of every month. The tests will be set to deliver at different times of the day each month so you can verify you receive messages at different locations. Next test and time is listed at the bottom of the page.

If this had been an actual Alert or Advisory message, there would be important information included in the email and web portion of the message.

Remember, you can always go to and enter the zip code of the area you would like to check for Nixle messages and view any current active Alerts, Advisories or Community Messages from any agency in that area using the system, even if you are not signed up to receive text or email notifications.

Please help us spread the word about Nixle by getting friends, family and acquaintances to sign up for alerts. Also, let them know that they can simply go to and enter a Mecosta County zip code to view any active alerts, advisories and current information during an emergency or disaster, even if they are not signed up to receive alerts. Think of it as a message board anyone can access for the most up to date instructions and information during a disaster.

If someone wants to sign up, have them go to or sign up using their cell phone by texting MECOSTAEMD to 888777.

If you have any concerns or questions regarding the Nixle system, please contact Mecosta County Emergency Management by email at or by calling 231-592-9484.

The next test will occur on Wednesday, March 14, 2018 at 10:30 a.m. EST.
