The CodeRED Community Emergency Alert system is used by the Emergency Communications Center to notify residents and businesses of critical situations and provide information regarding necessary actions. With this system, a specific geographic area can be selected to send messages to those within that area. You can register to receive phone messages, text messages and e-mail messages in case of emergency. The system is TTY/TDD compatible.
Events that may generate a message from the CodeRED Community Emergency Alert system include:
- Severe Thunderstorm
- Flash Flood
- Evacuation Order
- Shelter-in-Place Order
- Gas Leak
- Boil Water Advisory
- Amber Alert
- Community events with road closures
- Major traffic disruption
