Residents are encouraged to sign up to receive BernCo Info on the Go. With the hectic pace of today’s world, urgent information can’t wait. The county’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (OHSEM) utilizes a communications service that allows it to send important, valuable information directly to residents using the latest in technology. That means residents get the information they need to know, wherever they are.
The Nixle Community Information Service allows OHSEM to create and publish messages to be delivered to subscribed residents instantly via cell phone text message and/or email.
Notifications will include advisories on pending weather conditions like what we are experiencing now, traffic updates on road closures, community information about meetings and events, and alerts for immediate threats to the community.
The service is secure, reliable and free for the community to use. There is no spam and no hidden cost, though standard text messaging rates do apply. Subscribers can choose the way in which alerts are received, whether it is by text message, email or going online to the website.
Residents of Bernalillo County and those in neighboring communities can immediately begin receiving pertinent information via text message, email, and web by registering at www.nixle.com.
