Receive Real-Time Alerts During Super Bowl 50

The Bay Area’s Joint Information Center (JIC) Encourages Residents and Visitors to Text SB50 to 888777 for Important Updates Throughout Super Bowl 50

Santa Clara, CA, January 11, 2016—The City of Santa Clara Police Department, operating the Joint Information Center (JIC) for Super Bowl 50, is rolling out a new text alert and notification system to keep citizens and fans safe and informed in the days leading up to and during Super Bowl 50. The JIC is comprised of many agencies and organizations throughout the Bay Area working together to ensure coordinated communication.

The JIC will offer subscribers safety, weather, traffic and emergency alerts from Nixle throughout the buildup to game day activities at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA on February 7, 2016. Residents, visitors, Super Bowl fans and attendees can simply text the word SB50 to 888777 to receive the information. Current subscribers will still receive their regular local alerts from Nixle, but can opt-in to SB50 for Super Bowl specific information.

“We are excited to partner with Nixle to provide our community members with the most up-to-date public safety information throughout the buildup to Super Bowl 50. We know residents and visitors are excited for the event and this will ensure a safe and fun environment,” said Lieutenant Kurt Clarke, Santa Clara Police Department and JIC Press Information Officer for SB50.

The JIC will be working with city officials, agencies and organizations across the San Francisco Bay Area to promote and deploy the system so that community members will receive the most relevant alerts.

The alerts, powered by Nixle Community Engagement from Everbridge, align with the Bay Area’s commitment to safety and security over the course of Super Bowl 50.

“The safety and convenience of our residents and Super Bowl attendees is of the utmost importance, and we are excited that the JIC has partnered with Nixle to ensure that individuals have easy access to alerts,” said Captain Jeffrey Hunter of the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety, JIC Operations Manager for Super Bowl 50.
