Welcome to the Town of Peterborough's Alert and Notification page. The Town uses the NIXLE System which is a secure messaging service that allows town departments to send out both mobile text messages as well as emails (recipient's choice) instantly.
Nixle has been used around the country to help find missing seniors or children; evacuate flooded areas, and alert community of criminal activity. The power in the system is also its diversity of content, allowing not only those emergency alerts, but informing residents of road closures, snow emergencies, parades, important community meetings, and other "want to know" information.
There are several ways to sign up for alerts:
