Nixle is a messaging system, like the Alert Notification System, used by government and public safety agencies.  The Placerville Police Department uses Nixle to distribute emergency information, as well as other community information.  You can register your cell phone number and/or email address to receive notifications for zip codes where you spend time, and if a public safety agency in that zip code uses Nixle, you will receive alerts.
