Get Notified with Nixle
Although it is not officially summer June 1st marked the first day of the 2018 Hurricane Season. Developing an emergency plan for yourself and your family can ensure that in the event of a hurricane in our area your valuables and your home is secure.
Below are easy steps that you can take to be prepared:
• Maintain adequate levels of renter or flood insurance (which includes a 30-day waiting period before going into effect), even if you do not live in a flood plain;
• Safeguard important personal documents such as birth certificates, deeds or insurance policies; and
• Keep emergency supplies like bottled water and canned food on hand.
Additionally, I encourage you to sign up for Bay City’s Emergency Community Notification system Nixle.
Nixle provides an open communication forum that connects city officials and first responders to the community. Nixle enables real-time, two-way communication through text, email, voice messages, social media, and the Nixle mobile app. To sign up please look on the website and click on the Emergency Notification tab at the very top of the page. After clicking the tab, you will be prompted to add your name, email, and phone number to complete the process to receive notifications from the City of Bay City in the event of an emergency.
