Local Emergency Alerts
The City of Columbiana in collaboration with the Columbiana County EMA is now a member of Nixle. Nixle allows residents of Columbiana County to receive emergency alerts via text messaging to their cellphones as well as email. To sign up and start receiving alerts, visit http://local.nixle.com/register/ Create a new account by filling out the initial form. Then provide your street address. Nixle allows the City and County to specify an alert broadcast radius based on a specific location. If your account is setup with a home address in Columbiana but an alert for East Liverpool is sent out, you will not receive that alert. How ever, if a county wide alert is sent out, you would be included in that alert.
Additional addresses, such as a work address can be added to your account free of charge.
