Nixle Being Used by US Coast Guard for Bar Reports in Oregon

The US Coast Guard in Oregon has begun using Nixle to inform boaters of conditions at the Umpqua River bar. Prior to the implementation of Nixle, boaters would have to call the Coast Guard office multiple times a day in order to figure out what the conditions were going to be at the bar.  Now, boaters can use Nixle to subscribe to the Coast Guard’s bar report and receive a notification whenever the Coast Guard updates the bar conditions.
