Emergency Text Alert System Available to Rochelle Residents

The City of Rochelle is offering residents the ability to receive a text alert in the event of a local emergency through the Nixle alert system.

To register, simply text our zip code, 61068, to 888777 or visit the City of Rochelle website, www.cityofrochelle.net and click Emergency Alert under Police Department.

Utilizing the Nixle alert system gives our local emergency responders the ability to instantly alert residents in the event of an emergency. Alerts are sent by text and e-mail message. Phone numbers and e-mail addresses are not accessible by staff and will never be used for any other purpose.

“The City of Rochelle is committed to providing our residents with up-to-date communication wherever possible,” said City of Rochelle Emergency Management Coordinator Terry Inman. “We encourage our residents to share this service with friends and family so that we can build the most robust system possible.”

There is no cost to the City of Rochelle or the residents for this service.
