Cherry Hill to begin utilizing communication alert system for residents
Cherry Hill Township and Police Department ask residents to sign-up to receive local alerts through new communication alert system
[Cherry Hill, NJ] — Cherry Hill Township and the Cherry Hill Police Department have partnered with Nixle to implement a new Community Notification System to alert residents in real-time for localized emergency situations and relevant community advisories.
When residents sign up for Nixle360, they will receive trusted public safety alerts from Cherry Hill Township and the Cherry Hill Police Department. This service allows residents to receive critical information on emergencies, road closures, and other important local information right to their mobile device or email.
As a resident, there are several simple ways to register:
- Text your Zip Code to 888777 from your mobile phone
- Go to www.CherryHill-NJ.com and sign up via the Nixle Widget
Once registered, residents will receive a confirmation text to their mobile device. Residents may also customize their alert settings by going to www.nixle.com and creating a User Profile.
“With the vast majority of people having access to cell phones - we thought what better way to communicate with our residents than a communication system that will send alerts and notifications directly to their device.” said Mayor Chuck Cahn. “In the past, we have communicated via our website and social media pages, but we realize not everyone has access or checks for updates throughout the course of the day. With this new system, residents will have the option to sign up for alerts and notifications via text, email, voice, social media, and through the Nixle Mobile App in an instant.”
The service is secure, reliable and easy to use for our organization.
