The Borough of Hawthorne offers this Community Information Service dedicated to helping you stay connected to the information that matters most to you.
The Borough will provide messages of a general interest to local residents relating to both emergent issues and community activities. Registrants can choose whether these messages go to a cell phone, to an email address, or both. In addition to these general notifications, residents can choose to receive targeted information by registering for one of the interest groups listed below.
There are three different ways to register to receive Nixle notifications:
a) To receive texts and/or emails, you may enter your contact information in the appropriate registration box on the right side of this page (or elsewhere on the Hawthorne website). Registration is separate for each of Hawthorne's four different groups.
b) To receive text messages on your cell phone, send a text message consisting of the appropriate "keyword" for the group you wish to join to 888777. The "keywords" for Hawthorne's five groups are as follows:
HawthWire - for emergency notifications and general community messages
HawthYouth - for messages related to youth programs
HawthEvents - for messages related to Community Events
HawthGovt - for messages relating to local government meetings, hearings and ordinances
HawthPool - for messages related to the Hawthorne Pool
c) Registering on the Nixle website and selecting the appropriate Hawthorne group(s).
