Nixle Alerts, the system long used by South Bay cities to send emergency notifications to residents, is being replaced by Alert SB. The transition is expected to take about six months. Residents who are currently receiving Nixle Alerts will have their numbers moved to AlertSB. But residents are  encourage to re-register with AlertsSB so the new system will have their names and locations.

AlertSB notifications include public safety, traffic and public works. Cities may also use the system to advise residents of community events. Residents can choose to receive the notifications by text, email, cell phone or landline. The 13 participating cities are El Segundo, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, Palos Verdes Estates,  Rancho Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills Estates. Rolling Hills, Inglewood. Torrance, Gardena, Hawthorne, and Lomita.
