We've implemented an emergency notification system to provide critical information to residents and businesses in emergency situations.
An informative video on CodeRED has been produced by the City's Emergency Management. To view, click here.
The CodeRED system, capable of placing sixty thousand calls per hour, can call all persons registered with the service or just those located within an affected area, making up to three attempts to reach each number.
The system is only activated in emergencies. Examples of why you might be called are:
Evacuation orders and instructions
Boil water orders
Warnings of bomb threats, chemical spills, or gas leaks
Missing person alerts
Reports of criminal activities in or near your area
Reasons to Register
Your phone number may already be in the CodeRED database. However, your contact information may not be available if your utilities are paid by a condominium or homeowners association or a landlord; you rely on cellular or VoIP (Comcast, MagicJack, Vonage) rather than wired phone service; or you have recently moved or changed your phone number. Also, by registering you will be able to have notifications sent to a second phone number, email, or text messaging, and you can indicate whether a TDD/TTY device is being used for persons with impaired hearing.
Required and Optional Information
You must provide a street address for location purposes (no P.O. boxes, please) and a primary phone number. You may include an additional phone number and an email address. If you wish to receive texts, check the box indicating that the phone number is 'Mobile' and you will be prompted to select your carrier.
Special Instructions for Businesses
Business registrants should please enter the word 'Business' as the first name and the full name of the business name as the last name.
