Collingswood Introduces Nixle


Many of you have asked for an easier way to learn about what is going on in the Borough or to be made aware of emergent situations without hunting through posts on social media. During the month of November, the Borough of Collingswood will be introducing you to our new communications system, Nixle.

How do I sign Up? – Fill in the information on the form OR type the word "Collingswood" to 888777 on your smart phone to begin getting text alerts from the Borough on a number of topics.

How can I avoid getting unwanted messages? YOU will choose what messages you want to receive and in what manner (text or email or both in some cases).  Once enrolled, you will be able to select specific message groups such as recreation notifications, emergency messages, special events, community center, etc.

How can I opt out? You can choose to respond with a Stop Message at any time.

Will I get duplicate messages because I signed up for various groups? No, every number will receive only 1 message regardless of how many topic  groups you have signed up for.

“Nixle will allow the Borough to send specific communications on a variety of issues and allow residents to decide exactly what information they want to hear. If you want to know only about certain issues, you can; if you want to know about everything, you can," said Mayor Jim Maley.  "Hoping it will be another way to keep everyone informed on everything in the Borough. Should be even better than the info you get at the coffee shop!”

We are very excited to bring you this service and hope that you choose to participate. We are always looking for better ways to keep you “in the know”!
