The City of Oxford Asks Residents to Sign-Up to Receive Local Alerts
Oxford, Mississippi Residents Can Now Receive Real Time Public Safety Messages Through Nixle

The City of Oxford is proud to announce a new Community Notification System to alert residents in real-time for localized emergency situations and relevant community advisories.

As a resident, there are several simple ways to register:

1. Text 38655 to 888777 from your mobile phone
2. Go to and sign up via the Nixle Widget

Once registered, residents will receive a confirmation text to their mobile device. Residents may also customize their alert settings by going to and creating a User Profile.

The implementation of the Nixle system will allow Oxford residents to remain up to date on community alerts affecting our area. Residents will be able to customize their settings so that they may opt-in or opt-out on topics that are relevant to them. We anticipate this system to be useful in many ways: severe weather notifications, game-day traffic alerts, road closures, boil water notices, and notifications for events such as the Double Decker Festival.

The service is free, secure, reliable, and easy to use.

All Alerts will be targeted geographically, allowing residents to receive localized, relevant alerts from The City of Oxford. Nixle Alerts can be sent via text, email, web, and the Nixle mobile app in an instant. Nixle is partnered with NLETS for unmatched data security, as well as the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the National Blue Alert Network, and Google for unmatched reach and two-way information exchange.

We are very excited to have you experience it for yourself and hope that you will sign up for alerts today.
