Mecosta County Nixle Scheduled Test & Preparedness Information

From the Do 1 Thing organization: The Goal For August is to make your community stronger by getting trained and getting involved.

It takes more than police, fire and EMS to respond to a disaster. It takes people who are committed to neighborhoods, churches, schools and volunteer organizations. When people are willing to work together for the good of others, communities are stronger.

People who are involved are the key to a disaster resilient community. They are willing and able to look out for themselves and others. A resilient community is one that can withstand a disaster and get back to normal quickly (even if normal isn’t the same as it was before).
Remember, community preparedness starts at home. If you know that your family is prepared at home, you will be better able to help others in your community.

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

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.

If someone wants to sign up, have them go to or sign up using their cell phone by texting MECOSTAEMD to 888777. After signing up, go to and create a profile if you would like to customize the messages you receive and add other agencies as well.
