GOOGLE, NIXLE, AND PUBLIC SAFETY AGENCIES UNITE TO SHARE CRITICAL INFORMATION IN TIMES OF CRISIS.

When an emergency hits the city, how do you ensure everyone gets the critical information they need to stay safe and informed? This is a challenge Nixle is working on everyday, along with over 6,500 public safety agencies that partner with us to get these important alerts out to their communities. Research has indicated many people turn to the internet to search for information in times of crisis, though results can sometimes be buried, inaccurate, outdated, or unreliable.

Our partnership with Google sets out to change this. Using the power of the web and open data standards, millions of people now have unprecedented access to critical public safety information when and where they need it most. And most importantly, they can trust the information is coming from local authorities.

We are committed to transforming the way public safety communications are delivered to the public because we know this information can save lives. Our mission has, and will continue to be, to build safer communities together in collaboration with public safety agencies, their communities, and strong partners like Google that aim to advance our mission. Keeping the public safe has always been top priority for Nixle. And during those critical times, the public can feel safer knowing it’s top of mind and now top of search results.
