WHO CAN WE TURN TO FOR INFORMATION?
In our area, we have an office of emergency management. This office that monitors our area for storms and all sorts of other emergencies. In Enid and Garfield County, it’s the same office. The director of this office is Mike Honigsberg. Mr. Honigsberg has trained for years in Emergency Management and is a Certified Emergency Manager. He is also Chairman of the Tri-County Emergency Services.
The office puts out periodical information that helps keep the public informed of what is going on. Most times, you can find that information right here on Route 60. But what if something is wrong with Route 60 or I’m out of town? I would suggest getting the information DIRECTLY from the horses mouth. How do you do that? Very easily. You can sign up for updates from the Office of Emergency Management via it’s text message update system (NIXLE).
How do I sign up for Nixle Updates?
It’s very easy to sign up for Nixle updates. You simply go to the Nixle website by clicking on this Nixle logo:
Once there, you will simply put in your contact information and you’ll start getting updates DIRECTLY to your phone from the Office of Emergency Management. While you’re there, you can also sign up for updates from the Enid Police Department.
How else can I keep up with updates from the Office of Emergency Management?
The Director of Emergency Management, Mike Honigsberg, does everything he can to get out the message about potential emergency situations. If you have a Facebook account, you can get updates there. Twitter? Yep, you can get updates there too.
