The City of Battle Creek is excited to announce the launch of Textedly, our newest communication tool.
Textedly is an SMS/texting notification system to better reach our community members. This tool will allow us to text you, if you choose to opt-in, about a variety of topics.
We released a poll back in August to get community input on what you would like to receive text messages about. Based on those results, we have prepared three categories of messages: Emergency alerts, general city news, and COVID19 information.
If you would like to receive text messages from the City, you can opt-in by:
- Text BCALERTS to (844) 673-7474 to subscribe to emergency alerts (boil water advisories, severe weather, crime emergencies, etc.)
- Text BCNEWS to (844) 673-7474 to subscribe to general city news (building closures, events, elections, and general city service info)
- Text BCCOVID19 to (844) 673-7474 to subscribe to COVID19 (alerts and updates)
You may subscribe to all of them, or you may pick and choose based on what you want to be notified about. Your phone’s standard SMS/texting fees may apply.
Once you subscribe to a category, you will receive an automated reply back. This reply will include the estimated amount of messages you will be sent a month, how to cancel your subscription, and how to seek help with this system.
We look forward to connecting with you!
