Truckee Police Department and the Truckee Fire Protection District are switching from Nixle to the CodeRED Emergency Alert System as our primary method of communication during critical incidents. CodeRED is an opt-in notification system, and these alerts may be received as text, email, landline, cell phone, and TTY. By joining CodeRED we will be on one platform with Nevada County creating continuity between our jurisdictions. Residents and visitors are encouraged to subscribe to CodeRED to stay informed in the event of an emergency.

If you were a subscriber of Nixle you will need to subscribe to CodeRED. Beginning June 1, 2022 all emergency alert communications will be sent via CodeRED.
