Haltom City is now part of the Everbridge public safety communications platform. We have launched an upgraded public notification service that allows us to provide community alerts in a more efficient manner. This program also gives us the ability to maximize our reach when immediate notifications are necessary in "imminent threat to life" situations.
If you already receive NIXLE alerts your data will transfer over, but you are encouraged to create a new account and add your contact and location information and subscribe. You can stop receiving notifications at any time by removing your contact information from your profile.
