By Greg Knight | ASSOCIATE EDITOR

Tuesday, July 15, 2014 - 5 p.m. - The Mariposa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) has completed the installation of its NIXLE online alert system, which became active on Monday, April 28—and law enforcement officials are encouraging residents to log on to the Sheriff’s Web site to create an account or update their address information.

According to a press release from Kristie Mitchell, the Public Information Officer (PIO) for MCSO, The Sheriff's Office has now initiated the final phase of the new emergency notification system, which incorporates home phones, cell phones, email and text messages to notify registered users of emergency situations such as fire evacuations, weather emergencies, missing children or adults and law enforcement activity in the area. 

“All reverse 911 information has been incorporated into the new system,” Mitchell said. “If you have already registered with NIXLE we ask that you please log into your account or create an account at www.nixle.com and verify your home address. With the ability to pinpoint emergency notifications based on location, accurate address information is crucial.”

Mitchell added that there are a number of ways to update your information.

•Go to the Sheriff’s Office Web site at www.mariposacounty.org/sheriff.
•Visit www.nixle.com  
•Pick up a registration form at the MCSO office located at 5099 Old Highway North, or any Mariposa County government office.
•Register over the phone by calling the Sheriff’s Office at 966-3615 or (800) 774-8314 and speak with Mitchell during  office hours, Monday through  Friday. 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

For individuals that created account with the prior emergency notification system, CodeRED, they will need to register with NIXLE if they wish to continue with the account settings as previously set up with the CodeRED system.

For more information, call the Sheriff’s Office at 966-3615.
