What is CodeRED and what is it used for?

CodeRED is a web-based critical communication solution that enables local public safety personnel to notify residents and businesses by telephone, text message, email, and social media of time-sensitive information, emergencies, or urgent notifications. The system can reach hundreds of thousands of individuals in minutes to ensure information such as evacuation notices, missing persons, inclement weather advisories, and more are quickly shared. Only authorized officials have access to send alerts using the CodeRED system.

Backbone of the City’s Emergency Planning & Communications Outreach

CodeRED serves as the backbone of the City’s emergency planning and communications outreach. The platform allows the City to communicate with residents and personnel by sending telephone calls, text messages, emails, posts to social media and Mobile Alert app messages, to inform residents of emergencies and better protect life and property.

Therefore 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. When signing up for CodeRED, you can also sign up for Weather Warning to receive calls when severe weather (tornado, flash flood, severe thunderstorm, and winter storm) warnings are issued by the National Weather Service for your address.

Select Your Preferred Means of Communication

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. Your contact information remains private and will only be used for community notifications.
