York Area United Fire and Rescue is proud to be a part of the community on Nextdoor.  Through the Nextdoor app we will be able to connect directly with verified residents of our neighborhoods, providing announcements, safety information, and most importantly, emergency alerts.  The free app provides the ability to target specific neighborhoods, issuing alerts to only those areas that may be affected, without disturbing unaffected areas.  Nextdoor replaces the Nixle communications system, which was discontinued at the end of 2019.

Nextdoor is a new social platform designed for “trusted connections and the exchange of helpful information, goods, and services.”  Unlike many other social media platforms, Nextdoor requires that users create an account using their real names, and users must provide verification of their address to join a neighborhood.
