EVERBRIDGE NIXLE: UPSHUR COUNTY'S EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM
Once registered, residents will receive a confirmation text to their mobile device. Residents may also customize their alert settings by going to www.nixle.com and creating a User Profile. If you were a user of the previous WENS alert system prior to July 1 2022, we have migrated your information to the new system. If you are uncertain if you signed up previously, simply sign up again by following the above instructions.
All Alerts will be targeted geographically, allowing residents to receive localized, relevant alerts from the Upshur County DHSEM. Nixle Alerts can be sent via Text, Email, Voice, Web, Social Media, and the Nixle Mobile App in an instant. Nixle is partnered with NLETS for unmatched data security, as well as the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the National Blue Alert Network, and Google for unmatched reach and two-way information exchange.
UPSHUR COUNTY EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS REGISTRY
The Upshur County DHSEM maintains a list of individuals who may need assistance during an emergency situation. This information is only shared with other emergency service agencies (local fire departments, law enforcement, emergency medical services, 911) as needed. This information allows the agencies to better prepare to respond to the community.
If you or someone you know has a mental or physical impairment, or may need assistance in an emergency situation, encourage them to register with our office.
Additional information about the registry can be found by clicking here.
