The Town of Danville aims to keep you connected and informed about what’s happening in our community.
CONTRA COSTA COMMUNITY WARNING SYSTEMCWS can alert residents and businesses within Contra Costa County that are impacted by or are in danger of being impacted by an emergency. The CWS message will include basic information about the incident and what specific protective actions (shelter in place, lockdown, evacuate, avoid the area, etc.) are necessary to protect life and health. CWS is generally not used for traffic notifications or other non-life threatening incidents.

Most Danville PD's Nixle messages are in the "Community" category. They focus on crime prevention and are delivered via email. But subscribers to DPD's Nixle stream also receive "Advisories" and "Alerts," which are delivered via text message. Advisories typically notify recipients about events that could affect their movements around Danville, such as streets or areas that are shut down unexpectedly. Alerts involve situations when DPD would like the public to be aware of situations that require more immediate attention, like a missing person who is at risk.
DPD encourages people to set up an account via Nixle.com to better limit and personalize the messages they receive. These subscribers will be able to register specific intersections or addresses relevant to their concerns and also receive messages only from specified agencies.
Nixle supplements Town of Danville's emergency alerting systems already in place such as the CWS Alert emergency notification system. Please sign up for CWS Alert at https://cwsalerts.com/. Remember, no one system is guaranteed in an emergency.
