What's News in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin
Back to News
Prior to the start of the summer severe weather season, the Village would like to remind residents of the ability to receive public safety alerts via text or email.
Pleasant Prairie uses a service called Nixle that allows public safety officials to send text messages and email to subscribers in the event of a public safety emergency such as: a missing child or person, police activity, evacuations, severe weather-related emergencies, and other dangerous situations.
WHY SIGN-UP AND WHERE TO FIND INFORMATION IN AN EMERGENCY
If a devastating weather or emergency event has occurred or could potentially occur, Nixle will be one of the Village’s main channels of direct communication to residents regarding public safety information (and one of the fastest/most efficient).
The Village also posts emergency information to the main page of this website, to Time Warner Cable Channel 25 or Channel 99 on AT&T U-Verse, Twitter, and communicates information to local media for broadcast via radio, television and the internet. In certain circumstances the Village will also request a reverse 911 call to landline telephones. As landline technology ages and as many households choose to live without a landline telephone, this option becomes a less reliable means of emergency contact.
