The city's Nixle alert system has 600 contacts (487 for Email).
There is probably a fair amount of overlap between the two.
Reminder: at this time Nixle alerts only go out via Email, but please keep your text option, because under extreme circumstances the City can still use texting.
The city's Everbridge participation appears to only be at 246. Please consider signing up for the Everbridge notice - because in a true disaster Pottawatomie County might be the only ones capable of sending out updates:
Also, during the July 10th electrical outage the city started receiving texts from Westar. We used to have to contact the Westar dispatch in Wichita, and wait for a call back. So now, if there is an electrical outage check the Police Department's Facebook page and/or your email (Nixle) for updates. As soon as we get the information from Westar, it will be sent out via Facebook and Nixle.
