Mayor Janice S. Mironov announced that East Windsor Township has launched the Nixle communications system which can provide immediate notifications to residents who register, of emergency alerts, important advisories or significant community announcements.

The Nixle Communications system enables immediate text messages to registered cell phones and email addresses, to alert residents and businesses about safety and health subjects of concern, such as severe weather conditions, traffic disruptions, road closures, flooding conditions, power outages, and important health notices, as well as significant community updates and announcements.  This communications tool will assist the Township in notifying residents in real time concerning conditions or issues affecting safety and travel.

Residents can now register their cellular phone numbers and email addresses for the East Windsor Township Nixle communication system.  To register, residents can text “08520” to the number 888-777 from their cell phone. Alternatively, residents can go to the East Windsor Township website at www.east-windsor.nj.us/nixle and register to receive notifications via mobile phone and/or email.  To receive Township Nixle messages, citizens must register under zip code “08520,” regardless of actual zip code address.

Mayor Mironov stated, “The Nixle communications system is an important new tool that enables Township officials to provide residents and businesses rapid notification of noteworthy and immediate situations within East Windsor Township.  Registration for Nixle is simple and offers residents a valuable opportunity to connect in real time to public interest information in our community.  We encourage everyone to take advantage of Nixle alerts, in addition to our existing communications means through weekly E-News updates and viewing ‘Spotlight East Windsor.’”
