     Community Alert Notification System

The Borough of Franklin Lakes utilizes a community alert notification service called Nixle, which will alert residents on localized emergency situations and relevant community advisories. Nixle is administered through the Franklin Lakes Police Department.

The Borough will create and publish messages through Nixle. Nixle will then deliver this information to residents instantly through text or email. Typically, this will be real-time communication on issues such as paving projects, road closings, storm information, emergency management alerts, garbage and recycling schedule changes, and public events.

“So easy to sign up for Nixle alerts.”
