The CodeRED emergency notification system is a communication service available for emergency notifications such as a missing child, evacuation, bomb threat, hostage situation, natural disaster, terrorism threat, chemical spill or other emergency incidents where rapid and accurate notification is essential for safety, plus severe weather alerts if you so choose. CodeRED can employ mapping capable of geographic targeting of calls, coupled with a telephone calling system capable of delivering a pre-recorded message at a rate of up to 60,000 calls per hour. CodeRED can reach Eureka residents by residential phone, business phone or cell phone. The system will make three (3) attempts to contact citizens and will leave messages in voicemail and on answering machines. The system can also send e-mails if desired.
The only way to ensure that your information is entered into the CodeRED system is to sign up for the notifications. To include your information in the CodeRED system, visit the below link. You will be asked to provide your phone number and home address so that notifications made only to selected neighborhoods will be accurate. Again, your contact information will only be used for emergency notification purposes.
