Code RED - Emergency Notification


CodeRED, the City’s emergency notification system provides City officials the ability to quickly deliver emergency notification messages via telephone, email, and text message citywide at a rate of 1,000 calls per minute.

CodeRED is used for significant emergencies such as floods, earthquakes, bomb threats, gas leaks, missing children or elderly, and electrical outages.

If you have switched from traditional phone service to any of the newer digital products, including those obtained through cable providers, you must register if you want to be notified by the CodeRED.
