The Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office intends for Nixle to be an additional source of information for residents of Calaveras County. While we intend for Nixle to be helpful during times of important incidents, Nixle does not take the place of official emergency notifications conducted through "Reverse 911®" For situations where the public is being asked to take immediate action to ensure their safety (evacuations, shelter-in-place, imminent threat to life or property, disaster notifications, etc.), Reverse 911® or EAS (emergency alert system) will be used as the primary means of community emergency notifications. In these situations, Nixle Alert messages are only used to supplement Reverse 911® or other notifications.
