The City of Alameda has switched from using CodeRed for community emergency alerts, and now uses Nixle.

In 2009, the City of Alameda implemented the CodeRed ‘reverse 9-1-1’ emergency notification system. Since then, however, the Alameda police and fire departments have increasingly used Nixle, a multimedia community notification system.

This week, city officials announced that the city has fully switched to Nixle for emergency alerts and community notices.

Through Nixle, residents can receive messages by telephone, cell phone, text message, Twitter and other channels.

The City of Alameda is encouraging residents to sign-up for Nixle to potentially receive alerts and advisories about events such as:

Emergency Alerts

  • A big fire in your neighborhood
  • A major traffic incident
  • A Shelter-In-Place order

Community Notices

  • Missing person bulletin
  • Temporary street closure
  • Major sewer pipe rupture

Residents can sign-up online at http://local.nixle.com/register/
