Post Date:07/06/2018 3:00 PM

The Sausalito Police Department is committed to providing timely and accurate information to the Sausalito community during times of emergency or disaster. The information that the department provides will vary depending upon the circumstances of the emergency, but may contain safety information, shelter-in-place instructions, or evacuation notifications.

The two methods that the Sausalito Police Department uses to communicate with the public during emergencies are ALERT MARIN and Nixle.

ALERT MARIN is an emergency notification system operated by the Marin County Sheriff's Office of Emergency Services. In an emergency, the system will deliver emergency alerts to all landline telephones in an affected area. If you live or work in Marin County, you can also register to receive emergency alerts by cellular phone call, text message, email, smart phone application, or VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) phone call. You can register your cell phone or VoIP phone by visiting the ALERT MARIN website and following instructions.

Nixle is a free service that allows individuals to receive trusted, up-to-date information from the Sausalito Police Department. Subscribers can choose the level of information they want, from urgent public safety alerts to community advisories. Information from Nixle is available via cell phone text message, email, or the Sausalito Police Department's Nixle website. Nixle may be used to advise the Sausalito community of fires, police incidents, disasters, or other emergencies. To register for Nixle, visit the Nixle registration page and follow instructions. You can also text your ZIP code to 888777 to automatically sign up for text alerts.

The Sausalito Police Department encourages all of those who live or work in Sausalito to register for ALERT MARIN and Nixle.
