Alerts & Advisories

Peterborough uses the NIXLE System, a secure messaging service, to send alerts via text message and/or email (recipient's choice) to subscribers. NIXLE has been used around the country to help find missing seniors or children, evacuate flooded areas, and alert communities of criminal activity. The Town most often utilizes the system to alert residents of accidents/road closures, disruptions to utilities, and snow emergencies.
