Great Idea, Poor Execution
This was originally recommended as an emergency warning system. It has my location (exact address). It has a loud warning signal when a message is sent. All good so far. In the approximately 3 years that I’ve had it I’ve received several alerts that didn’t pertain to me. I received an immediate evacuation alert at 2am that was a mistake, fortunately my wife called to verify the accuracy of the alert.
Now, along with emergency alerts I have started getting warnings. Last night I was woken at 10:20pm with a warning that rain was detected and could result in a debris flow. Then at 10:50pm I was awoken agin to receive the same warning in Spanish. I don’t speak Spanish. It wasn’t even rainy at the time that I received this “emergency” warning. This possible debris flow had been discussed on the local news for two days thus I didn’t need to be woken twice on a week night with this information. I don’t understand why they can’t send the warning in English and Spanish at the same time.
I will be cancelling this service and don’t recommend it.

Not as helpful as nixle texts
I admit I’ve only used it for three days, but the nixle texts that I’ve gotten have been much more helpful. This app opens to the map and requires that I allow it to know my location all the time in order for that map to be any use. I would rather not give it that permission. So I signed up for the alerts like I had via text. It still opens to the map, even though I’m not sharing my location. I am not getting the same alerts as I was on text, have had to use both text and app (how can I get a text for Anchorage Water, but not be able to find it anywhere in the app?). My employer uses everbridge; couldn’t find them on the app at all either. I gave up. Hoping texts will work again now that I deleted it.
Completely useless, could get you killed.
It’s wildfire season up here. We get evacuated all the time. Alerts get to us in every way BUT this app. Email directly from the OES? Sure. Texts from Nixle? You got it. Watching the police and fire departments on Twitter? All day and all night. This junk? Silent as a mouse. Yes, I created an account, allowed notifications, subscribed to every available service for my location, connected my Nixle account (same company,) the whole shebamg.
Given that this is meant to be a literal lifeline for people in their most dire hour of need, that silence is downright dangerous. Seconds count. Push notifications exist and people’s mental models are tuned to expect them. Providing them an app that claims they’ll get push notifications about events that might literally decide if they live or die, then just... never sending any data? Irresponsible. Deleting this, and will keep relying on more traditional means.
