The CodeRED emergency notification system is a communication service available for emergency and non-emergency notifications. CodeRED employs internet mapping that is capable of geographically targeting calls, coupled with a telephone calling system capable of delivering a pre-recorded message directly to homes and businesses at the rate of up to 60,000 calls per hour.
The system's main purpose is to notify citizens or groups of citizens in emergency situations; however, the system has the ability to be used for non-emergency notifications as well.
Register Your Telephone Number
It is recommended that all citizens and businesses register, as well as individuals who have unlisted telephone numbers, those who have changed their telephone number or address in the past year, and those who use a cellular phone or VoIP phone as their primary telephone number.
IMPORTANT: USE YOUR PHYSICAL ADDRESS.
DO NOT USE POST OFFICE OR ADDRESSES OUTSIDE OF THE CITY OF ZION.
