Citizens who had previously signed up for the Nixle community notification system to receive updates from the City of Cumberland are now encouraged to register for Notify Me.
This feature can be accessed by visiting www.cumberlandmd.gov and clicking on the large Notify Me button in the middle of the page, or directly at http://www.cumberlandmd.gov/list.aspx.
What is Notify Me?
The Notify Me feature allows you the opportunity to get up-to-date notices on City of Cumberland news items, water line breaks, and other emergency alerts. You can sign up and have notifications of these and other items by email, cell phone text message (SMS), or both.
Why do I care?
If you want to be kept up-to-date, without checking the website constantly, then Notify Me is for you.
What is the catch?
NONE! It is free. The City of Cumberland will never sell or use your email address or phone number for any other purpose and you can leave any time you want!
Do I have to give you my phone number?
No. If you do not want to use the mobile alerts feature then you do not provide your mobile number.
Is the text message free?
Yes, with most mobile plans. The City of Cumberland does not charge, nor do we send 'premium' text messages. As long as your mobile carrier does not charge you for incoming messages there is no fee.
