The Town of Truckee will conduct a simultaneous test of the Nixle emergency alerts system which serves Town of Truckee residents.

Town of Truckee residents and visitors alike can sign-up for Nixle messages by texting 888777 with the Truckee zip code of 96161 for pre-event messages and emergency notifications.

Both Code Red and Nixle are high-speed mass notification systems designed to notify Nevada County and Town of Truckee residents in the event of an emergency. Emergency alerts are one of many communication tools utilized by the local government in the event of an emergency, and testing these systems is an important part of emergency planning.

These tools are not a guaranteed source of information, and residents should be prepared and remain situationally aware.
