CodeRED is a critical communications solution that allows public safety officials to send critical communications to citizens.  Citizens can receive a variety of emergency information messages, from evacuation alerts, missing children, severe weather alerts, boil advisories, and more.

CodeRED can either send you a text message, email, or you can opt in and receive telephone calls with pre-recorded messages for the emergency or advisory.

CodRED is FREE to anyone who signs up.  In order to receive these alerts, citizens need to sign up online.  Citizens are encouraged to download the CodeRED app as well.  Personal information is stored by CodeRED and will not be released to anyone unless subpoenaed through a court of law.

When will CodeRED be used?

Any message regarding the safety of our residents and community will be disseminated using CodeRED.  We will send out alerts via phone, text, email, and social media in a variety of situations including boil water notices, gas leaks, evacuation notices, police activity, fire emergencies, missing persons, and more.  This is a community alert system to ensure you remain informed of important information.  Please keep in mind that as you register to receive CodeRED alerts, you have the ability to select the types of messages you wish to receive and your preferred means of communication.

Is there a cost to register for CodeRED?

No, registering for CodeRED phone calls, text messages, and emails are free.  Simply sign up and select your preferred means of communication.  Note: Standard text messaging and data rates apply per your phone service provider.

How will I know when CodeRED is calling?

A CodeRED message will have the caller ID # 1-866-419-5000 for emergencies and caller ID # 1-855-969-4636 for non-emergencies.  We suggest that you program these numbers into your cell phone as a "new contact" and use "CodeRED" as the contact name.  If you need to replay the message received, you can dial this number and listen to the message again in its entirety.

Why is CodeRED important to me?

CodeRED is an important tool to help keep you informed and prepared for any emergencies that may occur in our area. Officials will send messages to alert you of emergency details, instructions, or precautions that you need in order to make well-informed decisions and remain safe. This system is precise enough to geotarget residents within an exact area of impact, so that only those people who are affected by emergency situation are notified.
