FEATURED IN PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENTS
"We first began using Nixle over a year ago, and it remains a valuable addition to our other public information tools and emergency notification channels," commented Wayne Holt, Publications Manager for the City of Pasadena. "It doesn't surprise us that Nixle has received this award. We've found it to be one of the best options to distribute 'must see' information such as emergency messages and weather-related alerts. Events and activities that we can't quickly share using traditional methods also benefit from this service. We're excited to also begin integrating Nixle InterConnect to assist in internal communications with emergency operations center personnel and other city employees."
The City of Pasadena encourages residents to sign up for Nixle notifications to receive important and timely information in emergencies using their choice of text/SMS, e-mail, and Internet posts. Citizens can register to receive messages from the City and other local agencies by sending a text message with their zip code to 888777. Online registration is also available at www.nixle.com.
Eric Liu, CEO of Nixle, said, "We are proud to be providing Pasadena with both Nixle Connect and InterConnect for their communications with the public and internal employees. It is always encouraging to hear feedback from an early adopter of our services and know that it has received positive responses from citizens and the media. We look forward to hearing future successes from the City of Pasadena and other agencies using Nixle."
