Claremont Insider: CodeRED

Monday, July 2, 2007


Claremont recently announced the purchase and implementation of CodeRED emergency notification system. A grant from FEMA and the State Office of Emergency Services provided the funds to buy the system.

One of the complaints during the 2003 Grand Prix fire was that some people did not hear the police and fire department evacuation announcements. With CodeRED, residents are notified of public safety emergencies by phone, cell phone, and computer.

The city website states that CodeRED can deliver up to 60,000 pre-recorded messages per hour. The phone numbers are provided by Verizon. You can also provide the city with your contact information to ensure that they have your correct contact numbers. There is also an opt out form if you want to be placed on a "Do Not Call" list.
