Seconds Count in an Emergency
The City of Zion has instituted the CodeRed® Emergency Notification System – an ultra high-speed telephone communication service for emergency notifications. This system allows us to telephone all or targeted areas of the City in case of an emergency situation that requires immediate action (such as a boil-water notice, missing child or evacuation notices). The system is capable of dialing 30,000 phone numbers per hour. It then delivers our recorded message to a live person or an answering machine, making three attempts to connect to any number.
Emergency Notification Features
- High speed delivery of critical emergency message targeted to the appropriate audience.
- The system allows for you to enter both your primary phone number and an alternate phone number.
- The system allows for both residential and business listings.
- Tone delivery of emergency messages for the hearing impaired.
Our contact database is comprised of published telephone numbers. Residents or businesses with unlisted numbers should register, as well as anyone who wants to add a second number or just verify that the information we have is correct.
Please take a moment to submit your information to the Emergency Notifications Network. This system will only be used for emergency purposes and village-wide announcements!
