Sign Up for Nixle Notification System for Emergency & Community Information

Nixle messaging is one of the ways the Town can communicate emergency or other community information to residents.  This was one of the ways the Town was able to communicate the information about the recent water line break and the resulting boil water notice. That information is provided to subscribers through text messages to your phone and via email.  All residents are encouraged to sign up for this notification system.  There is no charge from the town for this service, but message and data rates may apply if you chose to receive alerts through your cell phone and/or smart devices.

This system allows residents to receive the following types of alerts and notifications

  • Emergency Alerts (i.e. tornado warning, major water issues)
  • Advisory Notifications (i.e. road closures, police activity, severe weather)
  • Community Notification (i.e. town hall updates, event information)

There are three ways to sign up:

  • Sign up by texting the word Fairview to 888777
  • Sign up using the Nixle widget on the homepage of the town website at www.fairviewtexas.org . Using this sign up method will result in you needing to enter the Town of  Fairview 75069 zip code.
  • Sign up through Nixle’s website at www.nixle.com . Using this sign up method will result in you needing to enter the Town of Fairview 75069 zip code.

No matter which method you decide to use as a means of signing up it’s recommended that you register an account at Nixle’s website to customize what messages you receive and how you receive them. Registering an account through Nixle’s website will also allow those signing up via text message to add an email address for receiving alerts and notifications.

How will I receive messages?

If you sign up by texting the word Fairview to 888777 then you will receive messages through your cell phone and/or smart device.

If you sign up using the widget on the town’s website or through the Nixle website you have the ability to enter both your cell number and email address for receiving alerts and notifications.

However you chose to sign up, by registering an account at www.nixle.com you can customize how you want to receive alerts and notifications and whether you would like to receive messages from municipalities/agencies other than Fairview.

Citizens can receive Emergency Alerts and Advisory Notifications through text message and/or email. Community Notifications can only be received via email, which means you must provide an email address.
