Our Emergency services: Fire, Emergency Medical Services, Law Enforcement, and emergency support agencies such as public works know their specific jobs and do them well during emergency situations. One very important component in the mitigation of an emergency is having the ability to keep the general public informed oat all times. Just recently, the Northstar Fire Department registered with Nixle Connect, a service that allows the Fire Department to communicate directly with the public via text and e-mail at no cost. Communications can range from emergency alerts such as mandatory evacuations, public safety information like boil notices, and other critical community information.
The Northstar Community Services District is reccomending that all property owners and visitors to the community sign up for this free public safety messaging system.
In order to sign up to receive instant text messages simply text "Northstar" to 888777. You will be sent back two confirmation messages advising that you are registered. In order to sign up for free e-mail messages go to www.nixle.com and follow the instructions to sign up as a user.
