Nixle Community Notification System
The City of Harrisonville has partnered with Nixle, a product of Everbridge, to implement its Community Notification System to alert residents in real-time for local emergency situations and relevant community information.
As a resident, there are two simple ways to register:
1. Text your ZIPCODE to 888-777 from your mobile phone.
2. Go to www.nixle.com, enter your ZIPCODE in the search bar, and then on the next page, click the Sign Up button.
3. Using the widget at the bottom of this page.
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.
The service is secure, reliable and easy to use for our organization. All Alerts will be targeted geographically, allowing residents to receive localized, relevant alerts from the City about severe-weather information, safety hazards, security threats, traffic advisories and more.
The City of Harrisonville has a Class 3 rating through the Insurance Services Offices, Inc (ISO). This rating is used by major insurance carriers to assist in establishing premiums.
The system rates communities on a scale of one to nine, with one being the highest. The city’s success in obtaining a good fire insurance rating is the result of the efforts of several entities, including the Board of Aldermen, and water divisions of the Public Works Department.
