MARIPOSA COUNTY – The Mariposa County Sheriff’s Office has now initiated the final phase of their new Emergency Notification System NIXLE. This new system can incorporate voice home phones, cell phones, email and text messages.
The Sheriff will use this system to notify residents of emergency situations that can impact you and your family such as fire evacuations, weather emergencies, missing children and adults, and Law Enforcement activity in the area.
All reverse 911 information has been incorporated into the new system. If you have already registered with NIXLE, the Sheriff’s Office asks that you please log in to 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.
You can do this several ways:
1. Go to the Sheriff’s website at www.mariposacounty.org/sheriff
2. You can visit www.nixle.com
3. You can pick up a registration form in our office located at 5099 old Highway North, or any Mariposa County Government Office
4. Register over the phone. You can call the Sheriff’s Office at 209-966-3615 or 1-800-774-8314 and speak with Kristie Mitchell during office hours Monday – Friday 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
For individuals who created their own account with the prior emergency notification system CodeRED, you will need to register with NIXLE if you wish to continue with your account settings as previously set up with the CodeRED system.
“Please rest assured that we do not share your personal information,” says Sheriff Binnewies. “All information will be used for Law Enforcement public safety emergencies only.”
