The Communications Survey conducted by the Village in July 2020 sought feedback from residents in order to improve access to important community information. Ninety-four percent of respondents to the survey indicated an interest in using an emergency alert notification service. To that end, the Village of Sugar Grove and the Sugar Grove Township Fire Protection District are partnering with Nixle to provide residents with real-time informational updates and emergency alerts.
Nixle 360 provides secure and reliable communications and will connect residents to Village departments such as the Police and Public Works as well as the Sugar Grove Township Fire Protection District. Notifications regarding public emergencies, emergency road closures, severe weather alerts, and more will be delivered via multiple platforms, including phone, text, email and social media.
More information regarding the program and details on how to register will be rolled out in the coming weeks.
