CodeRED is a fast communication tool for emergency notification. When there is an emergency, the City determines which neighborhoods or areas are affected and creates a recorded message that describes the emergency and provides directions to the public. After the message is confirmed, the high-speed dialer delivers the message at a rate of 50,000 calls an hour to a live person or an answering machine, making three attempts to connect to any number.
CodeRED will already reach the majority of residents who have a landline phone. However, the City encourages residents and all businesses to register their phone number if:
- You have moved or changed your phone number in the last 6 months,
- You have an unlisted phone number,
- You use your cell phone as your primary phone number,
- You use TDD/TTY equipment, and/or
- You are a business.
*Attention Businesses! When at this site, please click on Business Data to register your "business" number..
*Pagers cannot receive CodeRED emergency alerts.
Your information will remain completely private and will only be made available to notify you of critical situations.
