REAL-TIME ALERTS DURING SUPER BOWL ACTIVITIES
The City of Santa Clara Police Department, operating the Joint Information Center (JIC) for Super Bowl 50, is rolling out a new text alert and notification system to keep citizens and fans safe and informed in the days leading up to and during Super Bowl 50. The JIC is comprised of many agencies and organizations throughout the Bay Area working together to ensure coordinated communication.
The JIC will offer subscribers safety, weather, traffic and emergency alerts from Nixle throughout the buildup to game day activities at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA on February 7, 2016. Residents, visitors, Super Bowl fans and attendees can simply text the word SB50 to 888777 to receive the information. Current subscribers will still receive their regular local alerts from Nixle, but can opt-in to SB50 for Super Bowl specific information.
The JIC will be working with city officials, agencies and organizations across the San Francisco Bay Area to promote and deploy the system so that community members will receive the most relevant alerts.
The alerts, powered by Nixle Community Engagement from Everbridge, align with the Bay Area’s commitment to safety and security over the course of Super Bowl 50. For more information, or to sign up to receive messages, visit http://www.nixle.com/SB50/
