Vernon County Emergency Management has partnered with Nixle to implement its Community Notification System to alert residents in real-time for localized emergency situations and relevant community advisories.

As a resident, there are several simple ways to register:

1. Text your ZIP code to 888777 from your mobile phone.

2. Go to and sign up via the Nixle Widget.

Once registered, residents will receive a confirmation text to their mobile device. Residents may also customize their alert settings by going to and creating a User Profile.

“This is a great tool we can use to get information out for missing persons, and for different emergencies that may impact the residents and visitors of Vernon County,” said Brandon Larson, Emergency Management director. “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 Vernon County Emergency Management. Nixle Alerts can be sent via text, email, web, social media and the Nixle Mobile App in an instant.

“We are very excited to have you experience it for yourself,” Larson said.
